About the Center for Chinese Music and Culture (CCMC)

The MTSU Center for Chinese Music and Culture is the only center of its kind in North America. CCMC’s mission is to engage regional, national, and global communities about rich and diverse musical and cultural traditions from China. We strive to promote cultural diversity and mutual understanding through learning, scholarship, and service opportunities. 

The Center is located in Murfreesboro, a part of the metropolitan Nashville community known worldwide as Music City USA. A 3,200-square-foot space at MTSU’s Miller Education Center, CCMC is composed of a gallery of Chinese musical instruments, a library and archives, and 2 classrooms.

Since its inauguration in 2016, CCMC has presented several concert series, Murfreesboro Festival of Chinese Arts, fine art exhibitions, as well as academic exchange programs between MTSU and higher educational institutions in China and the United States. CCMC hosts lectures and field trips for MTSU students and k-12 and performs outreach cultural programs in schools, senior living centers, and other interested groups in Tennessee.

CCMC is an international hub for visiting Chinese music scholars and musicians who give lectures and perform at the Center’s events. CCMC also works with the MTSU School of Music to offer a credit course of Chinese Ensemble
