2020 International Conference

Music Makes the World Go ‘Round

October 2-4, 2020
Leesburg, VA

Registration opens soon.

Our CMN annual conference is now over 30 years old!! Every year it gets bigger and better, creating many opportunities for performers, educators, song­writers, librarians, and families—all those who love music for children—to gather in a different part of the country. Together, we connect and reconnect and fill our hearts with laughter and song. We share songs, ideas, resources and information. The weekend conference has many exciting parts: an exciting keynote presentation; an inspiring Magic Penny award ceremony; numerous workshops about performing, marketing, production, copyrights, education, movement and building developmental skills through music; song circles and song swaps; late night jam sessions and countless ways to forge new friends and musical collaborations. It is an event not to be missed!
