The Community Music School (CMS) held a festive evening at the Governor’s Mansion March 6 and raised more than $32,000 for the organization. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, CMS provides low-cost, private music lessons to economically disadvantaged young people. Special guest First Lady Kristin Cooper spoke to the assembled crowd of 140 people about the importance of music education. Headlining the evening was Broadway star Alan Campbell, who later was joined onstage by CMS violin student Gabriel Bravo.
