Founded in 1890, The St. Cecilia Society is the oldest FIM supporting organization. It regularly raises scholarship funds and many of its programs provide support to young people studying music, in particular, Junior St. Cecilia and Student Musicale. St. Cecilia also holds monthly performances followed by receptions.
Its premier project is the annual William C. Byrd Young Artist Competition, which attracts talented young musicians from around the world. It rotates among voice, piano, strings and winds/brass. The next competition features voice and will be held March 3, 2018 at the Flint Institute of Music.
