WORLD CLASS MUSIC AT CCM

untitled

If you ask the young men and women who study viola and piano and jazz and arranging and composition and cello and clarinet and voice and flute at CCM how they like their professors, they will tell you how lucky they feel to have teachers like Ran Dank and Soyeon Kate Lee and Daniel Weeks and Dror Biran and so many others in their lives. And audience members who attend any one or more of these concerts will also feel lucky to have some of these musicians in our midst here in Cincinnati.

The term is too often abused and overused, but when one looks at the bios of these artists it is easy to come up with the words “world class.” And when you can listen to them in the comfort of the acoustically-perfect Werner Recital Hall at CCM for free, words fail. Let the music speak instead.
