The Composers' Society of Montgomery County, Inc. is a non-profit corporation chartered in Maryland in 1997. Its purpose is to promote the composition of new musical works, and the public performance of those works, for the enrichment and entertainment of the general public. All activities associated with music composition are also supported as purposes of the organization.

The CSMC accepts members from any geographic location, and of any age. Membership dues are currently $30/yr. (Oct-Sep), or $15 for 1/2 year or less for the period from Apr 1-Sep 30. Membership is required for compositions to be considered for performance.

We hold meetings once a month, except in summer, in Montgomery County, Maryland, and usually hold 2-4 parties per year in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

Our current performance schedule is three concerts per year of small ensemble works, generally up to a limit of six performers per composition. Many of our members' works are "classical" in style, but there are no limits on style of the works presented. Works in jazz style, spirituals, and rock music have been presented in past concerts.

We use both paid professional musicians and volunteer musicians for our concerts, depending on Society finances and other circumstances.
