Welcome to the Cosmopolitan Music Society

"Cosmo" to our friends!

The Cosmopolitan Music Society of Edmonton has been helping music lovers become music makers since 1963. We host a wide range of ensembles to appeal to all kinds of musical skills and tastes in the pursuit of musical excellence!


At CMS, our goal is to be the program of excellence for community music education and performance in the Edmonton area. Our ensembles rehearse weekly and our dedication to quality has enabled us to tour and perform across North America and Europe.
