Providing free outreach concerts is a highly valued part of the Club’s mission. The FMMC Outreach Program serves community, retirement, and nursing centers throughout Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC. Whether you are preparing yourself or your FMMC students for a formal recital, testing out new material, reminiscing over old material, looking for more playing time, or hoping to introduce FMMC to new communities, the Outreach Program is a vehicle for you to express yourself and to shine a light on FMMC. Residents and clients of these facilities rarely have the opportunity to hear live classical music and greatly appreciate our programs. FMMC members, both individuals and ensembles, volunteer their time for the program.
Join a roster of musicians that the Outreach Program sends to facilities that have indicated interest in hosting performances. FMMC players and singers perform small-ensemble concerts of approximately one-half hour to 45 minutes at senior facilities, libraries, coffeehouses, festivals, and other nontraditional concert spaces.
To be added to the roster of FMMC Outreach volunteers or the list of participating venues, please email the Outreach Program at firstname.lastname@example.org. Facilities are asked to provide information about the performance space, type of audience, standard time slots, and other times available, as well as contact information.

All FMMC volunteers who have played at Outreach sites are asked to report on their performances to email@example.com, including dates, names of Club participants, and feedback. This allows us to document the extent of this important community service, as well as provide valuable information about the experience.
