College Music Symposium, the premier journal of The College Music Society, was published in printed form for 50 years, 1961-2010. The journal included scholarly and historical articles, reviews of publications and recordings, reports of musical events, and discussion of curricula and teaching methods of interest to the music and higher education community.
Symposium emerges today as a refereed, web-based service through which The College Music Society presents the work of its members to the public and professional musicians. The name "College Music Symposium" honors the achievements of the past while using new technologies to meet the continuing needs of the public and all working in the music field.
College Music Symposium includes ten major service areas. From Scholarship and Research to Events in Music, all are welcome to explore Symposium's rich heritage of scholarship and discussion and obtain information concerning the latest professional opportunities. The Search feature enables the user to access Symposium's past work and emerging initiatives on the widest array of topics of importance to the music field. Mozart, Beethoven, Copland, and the gamelan, reviews of books and instructional materials, events in music, conference discussions – all will be found here. Through CMS Forums, exploration of topics of moment to the music field are available, too.
Members of The College Music Society will be expanding Symposium's components in the months and years ahead, bringing to the public the best of the music field's current work and ideas.
Welcome to Symposium, brought to you by those that are part of the music and higher education community as well as independent music professionals. We trust Symposium will enhance your understanding and enjoyment of music in the years ahead.

Welcome to the Video Lectures, Performances, and Lecture-Recitals component of College Music Symposium, a video archive of refereed music presentations, performances, and new compositions. All topics within music, and all styles of music, are eligible for inclusion in the archive. The included content highlights the broad interests of musicians, scholars, and composers worldwide. Please feel free to explore what we have to offer!
By providing a publically accessible, peer-reviewed repository of high-quality lectures, performances, and lecture-recitals, The College Music Society shares with both the music field and the public (a) the fruits of research, (b) informed opinion concerning recent and historical music and music-related literature, (c) the work of music faculty in higher education, and (d) information concerning the musics of the world. Taken together, through these efforts, broadly defined, the music profession may present significant findings and accomplishments, and contribute to an informed citizenry.
