Beginning on May 6, Cincinnati’s top cultural institutions and hundreds of Cincinnatians will descend upon New York City for CINCYinNYC, a seven-day showcase of the vibrant array of the Queen City’s performing arts.
CCM will be joining the likes of the Cincinnati May Festival Chorus, Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Ballet, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the Cincinnati Art Museum, Playhouse in the Park, the Taft Museum of Art, Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati, the Taft House, Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce and Oktoberfest Zinzinnati for this unique cultural movement!
New York-based CCM alums won’t want to miss this week-long artistic extravaganza, which includes three Jazz at Lincoln Center performances by the CCM Jazz Ensemble on May 6.
Under the direction of CCM professor and alumnus Scott Belck, CCM's big band will feature Jazz Studies alumni and other special guests, including CCM Professor Emeritus Rick VanMatre on saxophone and guitar virtuoso Fareed Haque.
Fresh off of its first complete performance of Beethoven's string quartet's, CCM’s internationally acclaimed quartet-in-residence, the Ariel Quartet, will also perform on May 12 as part of CINCYinNYC.
CCM Dean Peter Landgren encourages and welcomes CCM alumni living in the New York Metropolitan area to come attend the week’s events, reconnect with fellow alums and see what the rest of Cincinnati has to offer!
