January 2022 Programming is Fully Remote
Due to the spike in local Covid-19 cases, CMSS lessons, classes, and ensembles are being offered virtually for the month of January. We anticipate returning to hybrid programming in February, pending decreasing infection rates in our community. The CMSS building is currently closed to the public, but is staffed during our regular business hours. Please call 413-732-8428 or email [email protected] if you would like to be in touch.
All levels and ages welcome!
