Looking at the CCM calendar, one is struck by the number of recitals and concerts being given by faculty members. The College Conservatory of Music of the University of Cincinnati has an impressive number of artists who combine their teaching with performances in and out of the school. Being married to a Voice teacher I know all too well about the rigors of a teaching schedule – not only one to one work with the student, but attending rehearsals and performances, coaching ensemble work, researching and gathering music for the student to perform…

Hats off then to the following CCM Faculty who will be performing over the next several weeks in any one of the many of the school’s venues.

Sunday, January 15 at 4 pm in the Patricia Corbett Theatre. Free admission.

Soprano Patricia Linhart accompanied by pianist Julie Spangler welcome surprise guests to sing, cavort and complain about the challenges of aging and making music all at the same time in THE PAT AND JULIE SHOW (A.K.A. DIVA: RECONSTRUCTED)

Tuesday, January 17 at 8 pm in the Robert J. Werner Recital Hall. Free admission.
