The Student Artist Program (SAP) is an ongoing community engagement program that offers an opportunity for CCM students to gain performance experiences while providing a valuable service to the Cincinnati community. The program is specifically offered to audiences in retirement communities and senior centers located throughout the area.

Who Can Participate
The program is open to all current CCM performing arts students (instrumentalists and vocalists). In order to be eligible for participation, students must make an appointment with the Placement Services GA for a quick orientation and information about the program.

How the Program Works
A list of available performance dates and times will be posted electronically to the group of students by the SAP office. Performance times will generally be posted monthly and the program runs throughout the year. Students sign up for available dates and times with the SAP GA. The Placement Services Graduate Assistant will schedule the performances and provide confirmation information connecting the student artist to the centers. Specific instructions (driving instructions, contact person, etc.) are included in the confirmation email.
