A Moveable Feast in Corbett Auditorium

Moveable Feast Returns to CCM Village on Jan. 20, 2017

Cincinnati's premier fundraiser returns in early 2017 when the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) presents its annual "Moveable Feast."

Hosted by the CCMpower volunteer group of fans, advocates and alumni, this unique benefit event features students from all corners of the college in an evening of live entertainment and by-the-bite cuisine. Funds raised by Moveable Feast enable CCMpower to award student scholarships and grants. The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20, 2017.

A stunning showcase of CCM's world-class performing and media arts programs, Moveable Feast gives guests a chance to sample artistic and culinary delights throughout the college’s state-of-the-art facilities. Attendees roam through the expansive CCM Village at their leisure, socializing and enjoying dinner-by-the-bite while creating their own menu of artistic experiences.

Guests plan their own schedule of 20-minute samplings of student and faculty entertainment, including Jazz, Choral, Musical Theatre, Piano, Opera, Acting, Dance and Orchestra performances, along with tours of CCM's Electronic Media facilities, Lighting Design labs and other backstage areas.

Christy Altomare

CCM Alumna Christy Altomare

New for 2017! Each year, CCM’s Moveable Feast provides Cincinnati audiences with an opportunity to see the performing and media arts “stars-of-tomorrow” before they’re famous. This year’s program also features a performance by one of CCM’s acclaimed “Broadway babies,” as alumna Christy Altomare (BFA Musical Theatre, 2008) returns to CCM to provide a preview of her next Broadway role! Recently cast as Anya in the new Broadway musical production of Anastasia, which features music by acclaimed composer and fellow CCM graduate Stephen Flaherty (BM Composition, 1982), Altomare will perform the Oscar-nominated song “Journey to the Past” with the CCM Philharmonia Orchestra as the “opening course” on this year’s artistic menu.

Anastasia’s promotional team will be on campus to film Altomare’s Moveable Feast performance, which will then be used to promote the show’s Broadway run. Anastasia opened to rave reviews at the Hartford Stage; the show comes to Broadway’s Broadhurst Theatre on March 23, 2017.

Altomare’s performance kicks off three hours’ worth of fully customizable arts experiences. Cocktails and dinner-by-the-bite provided by Jeff Thomas Catering will be served throughout the evening.
