Cincinnati’s premier fundraiser returns later on this month when CCM presents “A Moveable Feast!”
Hosted by the Friends of CCM volunteer organization, this unique benefit event showcases students from all corners of CCM in an evening of live entertainment and by-the-bite cuisine. The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 23, and this year’s “Feast” celebrates the theme ONECCM and invites attendees to experience the performing and media arts institution’s UnCompromising Excellence.
A star-powered showcase of CCM’s world-class academic programs and state-of-the-art facilities, the fundraiser features samplings of artistic and culinary delights throughout CCM Village.
Guests can plan their own schedule of 20-minute samplings of student entertainment, including Jazz, Musical Theatre, Piano, Opera, Drama, Dance, Harpsichord and Saxophone, Choral and Orchestra performances, along with tours of CCM’s Electronic Media facilities, Lighting Design labs and other backstage areas. Back by popular demand, this year’s artistic menu also includes performances by CCM’s Steel Drum Band and artists-in-residence the Ariel Quartet.
New for 2015, A Moveable Feast will offer up suggested “Artistic Tracks” for patrons to follow throughout the evening. Newcomers and seasoned veterans alike can enjoy these pre-planned pathways through CCM Village. Learn more about this year’s Artistic Tracks by visiting ccm.uc.edu/tracks4feast.
The evening’s program will begin in Corbett Auditorium with a prelude performance featuring the CCM Jazz Ensemble and will conclude with a performance of the fourth movement of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E Minor, Op. 64, by the CCM Philharmonia.
Cocktails and dinner-by-the-bite provided by Jeff Thomas Catering will be served throughout the evening.
