SPRING IS HERE and music’s in the air – part two

Don’t know exactly how many or how CCM manages it all, but here are just three of the hundreds of musical events our local gem of a conservatory offers every year. Just in time for Spring.


March 30 at 4 pm at CCM’s Patricia Corbett Theater

Bach to BachEarl Rivers helms the combined CCM Philharmonia and Chamber Choir in Handel’s Zadok the Priest, Bach’s Magnificat, Bach’ Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 in G Major, and Handel’s Water Music.



April 12, 13, 14 at CCM’s Corbett Auditorium

La Clemenza di Tito was Mozart’s last operatic hurrah and it contains some smashingly good showpieces for the female leads in the cast. In the upcoming CCM production director Robin Guarino sets the action during the Revolution that overthrew President Batista and saw the arrival in Havana of Fidel Castro and his bearded rebels in January of 1959. I was there then and look forward to see how this update lets art imitate life.



April 14 at 7 pm at CCM’s Patricia Corbett Theater

A Brazilian Fantasy – Featuring three-time Latin Grammy nominee Jovino Santos Neto, the CCM Philharmonia and CCM Jazz Orchestra join forces under the leadership of Aik Khai Pung and Scott Belck in Fantasia Brasileira, an evening of Brazilian music for orchestra and jazz ensemble.


Tickets are available over the telephone at 513-556-4183. CCM Box Office information can also be found online at https://ccm.uc.edu/boxoffice.html.
