Benson and Mangold Sponsor Chesapeake Chamber Music

Benson and Mangold Real Estate recently became a sponsor of the 26th season of Chesapeake Chamber Music (CCM). Chesapeake Chamber Music is a non-profit organization which sponsors the annual Chesapeake Chamber Music Festival (June 5 – 19, 2011), the biennial Chesapeake Chamber Music Competition, (March 2012), and the annual Jazz on the Chesapeake Festival over Labor Day weekend.

According to Don Buxton, executive director of Chesapeake Chamber Music, “Without sponsors such as Benson and Mangold, we would not be able to offer affordable tickets to the CCM Festival each June, free concerts in area schools, and YouthReach, the program of free violin instruction for students in local elementary schools.”

Chesapeake Chamber Music’s YouthReach Program offers elementary school children in Talbot and Dorchester counties a beginning string music experience called First Strings, with a more advanced string music experience called Presto! now under development. The CCM YouthReach Program also supports concerts for elementary school children in the area. Concerts will be held this year on April 20 at Dorchester South High School in Cambridge and St. Michaels Middle-High School in Talbot County.
