CCM’s production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Into the Woods has earned nine awards from the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT)! The fairytale adventure turns traditional stories of Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk and others upside down, examining the “after” in these happily-ever-after tales.
LCT panelists praised nearly every aspect of the production, which was described as “fitting CCM like the golden slipper on Cinderella’s foot.” Awards were given in the following categories:
Congratulations to Dominic Marino, a Master of Music candidate in CCM’s Jazz Studies programs, for winning two DownBeat Student Music Awards. The magazine just announced that Marino was one of two winners of the Outstanding Composition Award (Orchestrated Work) for his piece “Perpetrator,” recorded last school year with the CCM Jazz Ensemble in the CCM Jazz Recording Studio.
Dominic also received another award as a recording engineer: Outstanding Performance Award for Engineered Studio Recording for a group of combo recordings that he engineered this Fall.
