The California Traditional Music Society (CTMS) is a non-profit, tax exempt educational organization that supports, promotes and encourages participation in traditional arts of the diverse communities of southern California. We do this through festivals, concerts and other events, public education and services to artists.
Folk Music in the Schools
In 2000 with help from a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the CTMS created a “Folk Music in the Schools” program. To date the program has reached over 100,000 under-served elementary school students. This short video about the program was created by Juli Emmel.
