Center for Musical Arts – Building Renovations Over the past several years we have been working to upgrade our facility. Thanks in part to a large donation from philanthropist Glenn Korff, during the summer of 2014 our building will see major renovations including soundproofing studios 1 through 8, constructing a new wall to separate Founders Hall from the entrance, as well as upgrading the lobby, waiting room, and restrooms. This phase of the project will cost approximately $500,000. We are also eager to upgrade the lighting and sound equipment in Founders Hall. For more details see page 16. If you would like to support the renovation of your community music school please visit COmusic.org and click on “Capital Campaign” under “Support Us,” or contact Development Director Margaret DeMichelis, 303-665-0599 x105, demichelis@COmusic.org.

Summer Location – Catalyst High School 1376 Miners Dr. #106, Lafayette, CO 80026

Due to our renovations, most of the summer programs that would normally be held at the Center for Musical Arts will be held at Catalyst High School (CHS). CHS is an internationally accredited school offering students the opportunity to experience a supportive and highly individualized education. We are excited to work with this Lafayette-based partner. CHS will also be hosting a number of other summer programs including Solar Astronomy, Physics for Fun, Winged Things, Video Production, and High School Mandarin Chinese.
