MTSU Center for Chinese Music and Culture (CCMC) is a hub for Chinese music and culture. Its mission is to engage regional, national, and global communities about rich and diverse musical and cultural traditions from China. CCMC strives to promote cultural diversity and mutual understanding through learning, scholarship, and service opportunities. 

CCMC is located in Murfreesboro, a part of the metropolitan Nashville community known worldwide as Music City USA.

MTSU Center for Chinese Music and Culture promotes cultural diversity and mutual understanding through learning, scholarship, and service opportunities at MTSU and in our communities. Since its inauguration in 2016, CCMC has presented concert series, fine art exhibitions, and the Murfreesboro Festival of Chinese Arts, 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 classes and performs outreach cultural programs for schools, senior living centers, and other interested groups in Tennessee.
