CCM stands among the premiere institutions for performing and media arts education in the world. In order to attract the very best students to CCM, sustaining our pool of available scholarship funds is critical. Without the best students, CCM would not be able to maintain its exceptional international reputation.
There is no question that CCM exists for its students. And great students come to our school to study with faculty who are founts of knowledge, who know what it takes to be very good, who are demanding and inspiring, who ignite artistic curiosity, and who are themselves national leaders in their fields. In short, faculty members form the backbone of the institution. CCM seeks funding for endowed chairs and faculty support that can sustain its level of faculty prominence and continue to attract the world's preeminent scholars, performers and teachers.
The best educational institutions in the world place a great stake in their connections outside the academy in order to more comprehensively inform their students. CCM's connection to the professional performers and media arts world is nothing short of astounding, with its graduates performing around the globe and teaching at the world's best schools. CCM must bring these arts leaders and others back to campus to infuse our students' educational experience with a greater understanding of the world beyond college life.
CCM is the largest performing arts presenter in the state of Ohio, showcasing nearly 1,000 recitals, concerts, plays, musicals, operas and lectures each year. The quality of faculty leadership and student caliber for these events is so consistently high that our public has grown to expect professional-quality work. Audience devotion is strong, and younger audiences are constantly being tapped. The potential for public visibility and recognition for sponsorship of any of our prominent performing arts series is enormous.
In addition to monetary support, we welcome you to support and engage with the CCM community in a variety of ways.
Many young students in our area have the talent and desire to learn to play a musical instrument. But something may be missing - the instrument! Find out more about how you can help these students by visiting our LINKS page.
