JCM-SSA: JCM Students perfrom for seniors.


JCM–Student Service Alliance (JCM–SSA)



Each JCMSSA Branch has an independent student board responsible for organizing free outreach performances to serve community members who, otherwise, would not have access to classical music. Students play chamber and solo repertoire at various venues of the board's choice throughout the JCM season. These venues may be retirement homes, public libraries, the VA hospital, blind children's centers, or other venues the board is able to procure. Students efforts are awarded with community service hours and additional monthly hours are rewarded to board members.
