Noon Notes is an outreach program of MCM and an extension of its mission.

Both professional musicians and local students bring chamber music to the Bozeman community in this special collaboration, now in its 7th year.

Noon Notes is funded completely by grants and donations, and is an organizational collaborative effort between MCM, Montana State University, and Bozeman Public Schools. The original development committee was MCM board members Loren Acton, Dennis Wentz, Renée Westlake, Gregory Young, Nina Matos, Julia Slovarp, and Ed Goldberg (who funded the first season).

Currently Julia Slovarp is the Artistic Developer, Renée Westlake is the Program Coordinator, and the managing committee is Dennis Wentz, Andrew Loftus, and advisor Ed Goldberg.

Funding for this free educational program comes from from the Montana Arts Council, Bozeman Library Foundation, Gianforte Family Trust, Ed Goldberg, Dennis & Anne Wentz, Renée & Stuart Westlake, John & Leslie Breitner, Walter & Regina Wunsch and the Murdock Family Foundation.
