Orchestral Studies

The orchestral program at the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) at the University of Cincinnati provides an unparalleled educational and performance experience for hundreds of instrumentalists each year.

The breadth of each season’s concert series rivals many of the world’s great performing organizations, and students become versed in a body of repertoire that encompasses more than most conservatories venture to program.

The close bond between the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and CCM’s orchestral program invigorates student conductors and instrumentalists alike, and our commitment to high standards enriches the cultural life of Cincinnati.

Conducting Studies Program

CCM offers graduate degrees in orchestral conducting at the masters and doctoral level (MM/DMA). Under the tutelage of Mark Gibson, director of orchestral studies, student conductors learn the craft in a high-profile program at one of the finest conservatories in the country.
