Backstage at CCM
Enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the work that goes into CCM performances and collaborative projects courtesy of the new Backstage at CCM documentary series.
These behind-the-scenes videos were created by students and faculty members from CCM's Media Production Division.
A Voice Like Mine
A Voice Like Mine spotlights bass-baritone John Mburu, who is pursuing his Master of Music degree in Voice Performance at CCM. Mburu studies with CCM Professor of Voice Kenneth Shaw. In addition to his roles in mainstage operas at CCM, Mburu has also participated in CCM's Opera Fusion: New Works initiative with Cincinnati Opera, which offers composers or composer/librettist teams the opportunity to workshop an opera during a 10-day residency in Cincinnati.
Breath Release Technique in Modern Dance
This mini-documentary shows viewers an excerpt from CCM's Modern Dance Tech Class, taught by Shauna Steele, Associate Professor and Chair of Dance. The class is an exploration of the kinesthetic sense (senses of position and movement of the body). Students learn how to combine technique with their own unique artistic interpretation.
Ready, Set, Action!
Join CCM Professor of Technical Direction Stirling Shelton and his Tech Production Two class on a Saturday as they rig the set and lights for CCM's production of the play Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale. Can they get it done by midnight?
Join one of CCM faculty member Aaron Almashy's audio/sound production classes as he and his students record student cellist Audrey Hudgens' lesson with CCM faculty member and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra cellist Alan Rafferty.
The Cello Lesson
Join first-year master of music student Audrey Hudgens for a lesson and conversation with CCM faculty member Alan Rafferty. A member of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra since 2007, Rafferty holds the Ruth F. Rosevear Cello Chair with the CSO.
Follow along as soprano Emma Marhefka, a first-year Master of Music student in Voice Performance at CCM, works with students and faculty members from CCM's Departments of Opera, Make-up and Wig Design and Costume Design and Technology to bring one of opera's most beloved characters to life.
