CCM 2009-10 Season Brochure

Page 1



Dear Friends: Since I arrived in the Queen City in September 2008, I’ve celebrated the richness and excellence of the CCM Village. One cannot fully appreciate CCM without acknowledging our rich heritage of accomplishment while simultaneously exclaiming our dynamic future of excellence. This new season brochure reflects the significance of growing toward tomorrow with respect and appreciation for where we have been. The size of this brochure might be the same as before, but the breadth and depth of performances and information reflects the ever-growing dynamism of CCM. You’ll find more than 70 events listed from among nearly 900 presented annually — dance, drama, jazz, musical theatre, opera, orchestra, chorus, wind ensembles and more. Programs are chosen for what they teach our students who learn and perform classics and popular favorites. CCM students create and produce new works resulting from the holistic training we provide. Add to this our well-developed and ambitious curricula taught by exceptional, dedicated faculty in our state-of-the art facilities and the result is excellence and magic. Part of our students’ immersive education is to perform before audiences. It is critically important to the students, faculty, guest artists and CCM administration to have you in our audience. We need to hear your reactions — laughter, sighs and, of course, applause. Your support and involvement in the school is important and appreciated. We are deeply grateful for the financial support of The Corbett Endowment at CCM and our sponsors — Macy’s, The Otto M. Budig Family Foundation, Christopher Dietz & Family and The William Hueneke Foundation. This support makes the excellence you experience possible through the provision of scholarships, production support and more. Whether you attend a performance in Corbett Auditorium, a dance recital in Patricia Corbett Theater or a show in the Cohen Family Studio Theater, please take time to give the performers your encouragement. Stop me and say hello. I enjoy interacting with students, collaborating with faculty, and I look forward to getting to know all of you. We look forward to seeing you often this coming season of celebration at CCM! With every good wish,

Douglas Knehans, Dean

Namely, how would I pay for it all? The answer came not four days later in an envelope carrying two offers: my official admission and a CCM Scholarship. Not only did it allow me to attend, but it allowed me to immerse myself fully without my former worries. It was both the door and the key to a future I thought I might never get to walk.”

WHAT THE CRITICS SAY… DANCE: CCM WINTER DANCE CONCERT “There are compelling reasons to see this season’s Winter Concert presented by CCM’s Dance Division: fresh, original works created by emerging choreographic voices of CCM’s dance majors and guest choreographer and Butoh artist Maureen Fleming’s group restaging of her seminal solo work” –Julie Mullins, CityBeat

CCM PRESENTS 20TH-CENTURY CLASSICS “College-Conservatory of Music’s 2009-10 Mainstage season will be dominated by some of the best 20th-century’s drama, musical theatre and opera.

The celebration will surround an extended run of the American tribal love/ rock musical Hair in November, which premiered in 1968, the year CCM musical theatre was established. An opening night celebration and a roster of related special events are being planned.” –Jackie Demaline, Cincinnati Enquirer

Karen Olivo wins her first TONY Award for her spectacular performance as Anita in the 2009 revival of West Side Story. “I’m so unprepared for this,” Olivo said in her acceptance speech. “I want to dedicate this to everyone who has a dream. A lot of people said I couldn’t do this. I just think that if you surround yourself with people who love you, you can do anything.” Matt Kraus (CCM ’01 Theater Design & Production) was part of the design team for Liza’s at The Palace...!, the 2009 Tony winner for “Best Special Theatrical Event” and starring Broadway legend Liza Minnelli. Kraus served as sound designer for this dancefilled tribute to the late-1940s nightclub act of Minnelli’s godmother, Kay Thompson.

A film edited by 2004 E-media graduate Greg Nicholson, Robot Love From Another World, was made for the 48 Hour Film Festival in Cincinnati. After the film won Best of Cincinnati it went on to the Miami International Film Festival. And then that led to Cannes. Greg edited the film for the Cincinnati comedy team Pizza Infinity, comprised of Kendall Burns and Josh Flowers. “I recently landed my dream job, I have a film in the Cannes Film Festival and I’m getting to do what I love everyday. I have to say, I couldn’t be happier. Thank you for such a great experience at UC and CCM. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the Electronic Media Division.”

HANSON EDITS OMEA PROFESSIONAL JOURNAL Dr. Lisa Hanson graduated from CCM in 2001 with a DMA in Choral Conducting. Dr. Hanson is the Choral Director at Lakewood High School in Northeastern Ohio. Her groups have consistently received superior ratings at the Ohio Music Education Association (OMEA) State Adjudicated Event for the last two decades. She was president of District IV, OMEA, and is presently serving on the Board of Trustees of OMEA as the Editor of TRIAD, OMEA’s professional journal. One of her fondest memories while at CCM was a quote by Dr. Elmer Thomas: “I am never alone. I spend my time with the greatest human beings — those like Mozart, Bach and Brahms.” He was right.

CCM SCHOLAR John (J.T.) Rooney is a junior in the Electronic Media program at CCM studying Audio, Video and Web technologies. He is an officer in all four Electronic Media extra-curricular organizations, including UCast Student television, BearCast Student Internet Radio, the National Broadcasting Society and the Music Entertainment Industry Student Association. “Being able to receive scholarships from CCM in addition to my UC scholarship was the final push for me to apply for the Electronic Media program.”

Dear Friends: Friends of CCM are advocates, fans and volunteers who love the performing and media arts. Our support extends beyond sitting in the audience. For more than 25 years, we have helped students achieve their dreams by providing scholarship support. I invite you to join the 600 or so Friends of CCM and help even more talented students. Our contributions create scholarship opportunities throughout CCM’s undergraduate, graduate and preparatory divisions. We also support career development grants, master classes and ensemble travel. CCM is one of the nation’s leading music conservatories. In its most recent rankings, US News and World Report ranked Cincinnati sixth nationally among university programs for pursuing a graduate music degree. Its voice program was ranked third, and its conducting program was ranked fifth. The support we provide is critical to maintain an edge in the competitive world of higher education. CCM is at a disadvantage because we cannot provide full scholarships to all students. Now more than ever your membership will help us attract the brightest and most talented students. Please consider becoming a Friend of CCM by completing the membership form below or calling 513-556-2100. Join online at www. by selecting College-Conservatory of Music and clicking on Friends of CCM. Your support will help educate our future stars. Warm regards, Dianne Rosenberg, President Friends of CCM
