Music Performance : Woodwinds

What is Music Performance : Woodwinds?

The Artist Diploma is for the highest level performers who want to further their study focusing on lessons, recitals, and ensembles. There is very little ancillary course work associated with this degree. This the most selective degree program at CCM.


UC Advantages and Special Opportunities

In addition to outstanding artist-faculty and degree programs, CCM offers the greatest number of performances annually in the state of Ohio and the advantage of being located in a city known for its intense interest in the performing arts. Major musical events are held frequently. The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra performs in beautiful and historic Music Hall as well as in its summer home, Riverbend Music Center. The Cincinnati May Festival is the oldest continuous choral festival of its kind in the nation, and the Cincinnati Opera brings major artists to the city. The Cincinnati Art Museum, Taft Museum, Museum of Natural History, Contemporary Arts Center, Playhouse in the Park and Cincinnati/New Orleans Ballet Company offer outstanding cultural opportunities.
