CCM Summer Programs FAQ

While CCM has transitioned to remote operations, we remain committed to our ongoing academic and artistic missions.

In light of State and Federal guidelines pertaining to COVID-19 and the University of Cincinnati’s suspension of in-person instruction, CCM has canceled all in-person summer programs scheduled to occur in May-August, 2020.

We understand your frustration and share your disappointment regarding these changes and cancelations. We so much enjoy hosting these artistic opportunities during the summer months, and look forward to when we can all reunite.

Thank you for your continued support and patience during this unprecedented time.
