CMS Participates in 2021 Fine Arts Education Day


Since 2004, the Missouri Alliance for Arts Education has sponsored a Fine Arts Education Day at the Missouri State Capitol. This year, as a result of the impacts created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the usual in-person celebration has become digital and virtual.

The Community Music School of Webster University submitted videos of the String Ensemble and the Suzuki Ensemble as part of the virtual celebration of the arts created by the Missouri Alliance for Arts Education as part of Fine Arts Education Day on March 24 at the Missouri State Capitol.

"Because our students come from schools and music programs from around the St. Louis area, we don't usually have the opportunity to participate in this incredible event when it is in person. The CMS is grateful to the MAAE for coordinating this virtual event - highlighting the hard work and dedication of these young artists and their instructors," said CMS Director Nicole Springer.

Tour the MAAE Website March 24

We invite you to tour the website  to experience the energy, enthusiasm, and excellence of Missouri fine arts students and teachers. The website features performances and artwork representing over 3,500 students from across the state. This is a project of the Missouri Alliance for Arts Education with the assistance of Educate Today and HEC Media.

Digital presentations will be presented in the Capitol Rotunda from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24, to celebrate Fine Arts Education Day. 

Financial assistance for this project was provided by a grant from the Francis Family Foundation. For additional information on the work of the Missouri Alliance for Arts Education, please visit
