In a continuing celebration of the local arts in Cincinnati, CET will present excerpts from CCM’s 2013 Mahler Marathon at 8:30pm Sunday, Oct. 27, on CET Arts.

Conducted by CCM Director of Orchestral Studies Mark Gibson, CCM’s Concert Orchestra will play selections from Mahler’s “Des knaben Wunderhorn” (The Youth’s Magic Horn) followed by his “Symphony No. 4 in G Major.” The symphony was written to represent a child’s vision of heaven.

This performance was recorded in March of 2013 as part of CCM’s Mahler Marathon, which was dedicated to the memory of loyal arts patron and UC alumna Louise Dieterle Nippert with the support of The Louise Dieterle Nippert Musical Arts Fund. A classically trained singer, Mrs. Nippert was a soloist in Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in 1957.

CCM Announces Collaboration With CET Cincinnati Public Television

CCM’s internationally acclaimed performing ensembles will be coming to a television near you courtesy of a new collaborative arrangement with CET, Cincinnati Public Television. CCM’s upcoming Monteverdi Masterworks (Nov. 28, 2012) and Mahler Marathon (March 2, 2013) concerts will be recorded for future broadcast on the CET Arts Channel, initiating an ongoing partnership between the two organizations.

“This was an idea that had ‘yes’ written all over it,” explains Peter Landgren, CCM Dean and Thomas James Kelly Professor of Music. “I know from my own experiences that performing for television cameras and live microphones brings you to a greater level of focus as a musician. This is an unparalleled opportunity for our students. I want to thank CET Executive Vice President and Station Manager Jack Dominic for initiating this partnership and for giving us this platform to showcase the talent of CCM.”
