CCM Announces Fall 2017 Schedule of Major Events

The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) presents more than 100 major public performances this fall as part of its yearlong Sesquicentennial Celebration. The largest single source of performing arts events in the state of Ohio, CCM’s Fall 2017 Performance Series runs Sept. 6 through Dec. 9, 2017.

Established in 1867, CCM will spend the 2017-18 performance season looking back on its history as one of the country’s oldest conservatories, celebrating the careers of its impressive alumni and faculty, and looking forward to the artistic futures of its incredible students!

Pick up a copy of CCM's Fall 2017 Calendar of Major Events or view the booklet online at https://issuu.com/ccmpr/docs/ccmfall2017calendarbooklet.

Sesquicentennial highlights include CCM’s Fall Choral Showcase on Sept. 24, which revives Norman Dello Joio’s Proud Music of the Storm, a composition that Ralph and Patricia Corbett originally commissioned for CCM’s centenary and the dedication of Corbett Auditorium in 1967!

On Sept. 26, the Ariel Quartet opens its four-part concert series with a program dedicated to the memory of CCM Professor Emeritus and LaSalle Quartet member Walter Levin, who passed away on Aug. 4, 2017, at the age of 92.

The Sesquicentennial celebrates the work of Broadway composer and CCM alumnus Stephen Flaherty (BM, 1982) with a production of his hit musical Seussical, running Oct. 19-22 and 25-29.

Midwest Emmy-winning soprano and CCM alumna Adrienne Danrich (MM, 1995) returns to her alma mater for a guest artist performance on Oct. 22. Composer and CCM alumnus Christopher Stark (MM, 2007), whose work has been called “fetching and colorful” by the New York Times, returns to campus the following week for a collaboration with new music ensemble New Morse Code on Oct. 29.

On Nov. 1, the CCM Jazz Orchestra joins forces with faculty artist and jazz legend John Von Ohlen to present the hits of the Stan Kenton Orchestra during a can’t-miss concert event.

From Nov. 2-4, CCM’s Acting Department mounts a production of Todd Almond’s (BM, 1999) The Earth Is Flat, a play about the American college experience set in UC’s own Calhoun Hall!

This fall’s lineup also includes faculty and guest artist recitals, fully supported theatrical productions, film screenings, orchestral performances and much more!

GAMELAN PERFORMANCE IN BRITAIN: ENCOUNTERS AND IMAGINARIES
Maria Mendonça, Kenyon College
The Indonesian gamelan – a predominantly bronze percussion ensemble comprised of gongs, metallophones and other instruments– has had a long entanglement with the discipline of ethnomusicology from its foundational moments to the present. But ethnomusicology is only one of several networks of circulation, including colonial administration, cultural diplomacy, educational ideology and prison rehabilitation, that have facilitated the movement and reinterpretation of the ensemble and its music outside of Indonesia. In this lecture, Maria Mendonça explores the ways in which the ensemble and its music has been reimagined and localized in Britain, drawing on her recent ethnographic film project Gamelan Encounters (2017).

THE EARTH IS FLAT
Written by Todd Almond

Richard E. Hess, director
The CCM Sesquicentennial celebrates the work of accomplished alumnus Todd Almond (BM, 1999)! A love letter to the University of Cincinnati written by Almond, The Earth is Flat explores the universal awkwardness of the American college experience. The search for identity by those least prepared with answers resonates with unexpected comedy in this new play commissioned by CCM Acting as part of the Cincinnati Playwrights Conference in 2016. A coming-of-age story set in Calhoun Hall, The Earth is Flat follows purple-haired Ethan as he takes his first tentative steps toward self-knowledge.

The New Colossus (1883) by American poet Emma Lazarus has been inscribed on a plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty since 1903.

CCM’s Wind Ensemble celebrates some of the great composers amongst those American immigrants, who have contributed what are now cornerstones of the wind repertoire. This performance is dedicated to the remarkable legacy of Karel Husa.

A WISDOM OF MUSIC
Scott Murphy, University of Kansas School of Music
Earlier this year, Harvard professor Mihir Desai published The Wisdom of Finance, which demonstrates how certain economic structures parallel humanity’s timeless struggles and aspirations as encoded in works of culture. One of those structures is the set of incommensurable preferences: citing Martha Nussbaum’s The Fragility of Goodness, Desai finds this set embedded in notions of what makes for a good life. In this talk, Murphy demonstrates that this set also undergirds many stylistic aspects of Western classical tonal music, in direct contradiction to a prevailing trend in music-theoretical research. From this perspective, defaults such as major-minor tonality and four-part textures emerge as solutions.

CCM Presents Staged Version of Bach’s ‘St. Matthew Passion’

UC’s College-Conservatory of Music will showcase J.S. Bach’s monumental St. Matthew Passion at Cincinnati’s Christ Church Cathedral at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 9. Conducted by CCM Director of Choral Studies Earl Rivers with stage direction from artist diploma candidate Andreas Hager, the performance features faculty artist Daniel Weeks and student aria soloists.

Known for its stunning choruses, interplay between recitative and aria and sublime storytelling, St. Matthew Passion has made an enduring mark in music history as a sublime example of a musical setting of the passion story. Thanks in part to a grant from the Cambridge Charitable Foundation, CCM’s staged performance illuminates the dramatic intensity of this Baroque masterwork, which retells the compelling story of the events leading up to the trial of Jesus, his crucifixion and burial.

“Bach was interested in the spiritual drama of the crucifixion, not only of Jesus but of society,” said Hager, a first-year artist diploma candidate in opera stage direction. “Our production explores the moral culpability we all face living in a complex world. From Judas to Peter to Pilate — no one can escape from the consequences of their choices.”

“Our production is spare and minimalist, allowing the full force of Bach’s music to take the forefront.”

The CCM Chamber Choir, Cincinnati Children’s Choir and CCM Philharmonia will combine forces to perform this massive work. To make this work come to life on stage, the CCM production emphasizes the piece’s storylines by designating arias to specific characters.

The story is presented by a narrator called the Evangelist, played by faculty artist Daniel Weeks, tenor, with student soloists as Jesus (Samson McCrady, bass-baritone), Pilate (Christian Pursell, baritone) and aria singers (Ashley Fabian and Jackie Stevens, sopranos; Reilly Nelson and Paulina Villarreal, mezzo-sopranos; Thomas J. Capobianco, tenor and Eric Shane Heatley and Joseph Mazzara, baritones).

CCM has a long history with St. Matthew Passion, which dates back to a February 1970 performance that featured alumna Kathleen Battle (MM Voice, 1971) singing the aria, “Aus liebe.” The college most recently performed the work in November, 2011. This staged performance, held at Cincinnati’s St. Peter in Chains Cathedral, was the first of its kind in the Midwest.

Join us for CCM’s latest production of this iconic masterwork. St. Matthew Passion will be performed at 3 p.m. on Palm Sunday, April 9 at Christ Church Cathedral, located at 318 East Fourth Street.

CCM Presents New Semi-Staged Production of Honegger’s ‘Joan of Arc at the Stake’ on Feb. 13

CCM’s Department of Choral Studies presents four exciting concerts this semester, beginning with a new semi-staged production of Arthur Honegger’s Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher (Joan of Arc at the Stake) at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 13. This concert will be sung in English with surtitles.

Poster for CCM's production of Honegger's 'Joan of Arc at the Stake.'Honegger’s monumental oratorio premiered in Basel, Switzerland, in May of 1938. Over the course of eleven scenes, Joan of Arc at the Stake recounts the timeless tale of 15th century French heroine Joan of Arc. Inspired by both popular and classical music trends of the 1930s, Honegger sprinkled his oratorio with flares of jazz, military fanfares, atonality and Hollywood styles.

CCM’s semi-staged concert production of this imposing work is a massive undertaking, requiring the combined forces of the CCM Philharmonia Orchestra, Chamber Choir and Chorale, along with the UC Men’s and Women’s Choruses and Cincinnati Children’s Choir. The production also features soloists from CCM’s voice and dramatic performance programs, along with technical support from the Lighting Design and Technology department, all of which allows Joan’s brief life to unfold in a truly dynamic fashion on stage.

CCM Director of Choral Studies Earl Rivers conducts this performance. “The drama takes place during Joan’s last minutes on the stake, with flashbacks to her younger days and her trial. Honegger entitled his work a dramatic oratorio, adding speaking roles and actors,” he says. “Joan’s life unfolds in cinematic scenes of heavenly visions, conquests, her trial and her eventual fate at the stake.”

Artist Diploma candidate Marcus Shields provides the stage direction for this production, explaining, “In a typical concert presentation of Joan of Arc at the Stake, the soloists would be using music with music stands. For our production, all of the solo parts are going to be memorized, allowing us to realize Joan’s story in three dimensional space. This allows us to shift the focus to real characters forging real relationships, detached from a music stand.”

This production’s feature soloists include soprano Tara Morrow as St. Catherine, mezzo-soprano Alyssa Narum as St. Marguerite and soprano Ann Toomey as the Virgin, along with tenor Robert Stahley and bass-baritone Junbo Zhou.

Joan of Arc at the Stake‘s two primary roles are actually spoken roles, so Rivers and Shields have also enlisted two actors from CCM’s Department of Dramatic Performance: Laura McCarthy as Joan and Landon Hawkins as Brother Dominique.

The last documented performance of Honegger’s Joan of Arc at the Stake in Cincinnati was at the May Festival in 1952, making CCM’s new production a very rare treat.

CCM’s Department of Choral Studies also presents three other exciting concerts this spring. On Wednesday, March 30, the UC Men’s and Women’s Choruses and Cabaret Singers perform Daniel Elder’s The Brightest Heaven and a variety of other celebrated masterpieces.

On Sunday, April 17, the Jazz and Choral Departments share the stage in a concert featuring Wynton Marsalis’ Abyssinian Mass. Prepare to be dazzled by this fusion of jazz and gospel.

Finally, the Department of Choral Studies concludes this year’s series with a celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. This concert features talent from CCM’s Drama Department, along with premieres of newly commissioned choral works on Shakespeare texts by American composers Ola Gjeilo, Dominick DiOrio, and Jake Runestad.

Cincinnati Children's Choir, Ensemble-In-Residence at CCM.

The Cincinnati Children’s Choir Premieres the Winner of its 2015 Competition for Emerging Composers During Annual Spring Concert on May 3

Celebrate "Angelic Spring" with the Cincinnati Children's Choir on May 3, 2015.

Celebrate “Angelic Spring” with the Cincinnati Children’s Choir on May 3, 2015.

CCM presents the Cincinnati Children’s Choir’s annual spring concert, “Angelic Spring,” at 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 3, in Corbett Auditorium. A CCM ensemble-in-residence, the Cincinnati Children’s Choir is directed by Robyn Lana.

Highlights of “Angelic Spring” include Ban Ban Caliban, a choral setting of Shakespearean text composed by Dan Forrest. Performed by the Cincinnati Children’s Choir Bel Canto Choir, the piece is a quirky, fun, octatonic setting for treble choir, piano and percussion including cabasa, ratchet, vibraslap and police whistle. The performance of this piece coincides with the CCM Department of Choral Studies’ ongoing Shakespeare Quadricentennial celebration.

The Bel Canto Choir will also premiere the winner of its national competition for emerging composers. This year’s winner is Kevin Padworski from Denver with his pieceVidi Aquam.

In addition to the Bel Canto Choir, the Con Brio, Vivace and Allegro and Piccolo Coro Choirs, as well as the Cincinnati Girl Choir and Cincinnati Young Men’s Choir will be performing music from around the globe, singing of travel, hope and love. The concert will feature many alumni of the Cincinnati Children’s Choir, along with this year’s graduating seniors.

“Angelic Spring” is the start of a very busy season for the members of the Cincinnati Children’s Choir. Later on this summer, the ensemble will travel to Vatican City to perform in a mass at St. Peter’s Basilica. The Cincinnati Children’s Choir has also been asked to represent the USA at the World Expo in Milan, performing under the American flag. The annual Expo gathers countries from around the world to state their thoughts on a chosen theme. This year’s theme is “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.”

The Cincinnati Children’s Choir travels often, although international performances generally happen only once every three years. Since the ensemble had traveled to Beijing in 2014 for the International Children’s Choir Festival, this latest international opportunity was an unexpected honor!

Director Robyn Lana explains, “Participation in the program fosters joyful fulfillment, a sense of achievement, increased independence, confidence and leadership qualities in our choristers.”

5 p.m. Sunday, May 3

Location
Corbett Auditorium, CCM Village
University of Cincinnati

CCM Presents Dave Brubeck’s ‘The Gates of Justice’ in Concert at the Knox Presbyterian Church on April 19

CCM’s Choral Concert Series comes to a close this month with a special performance of Dave Brubeck’s The Gates of Justice at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 19.

Under the direction of CCM Associate Professor of Ensembles and Conducting Brett Scott, the CCM Chorale and Brass Choir will welcome the Phil DeGreg Trio and special guests from the Martin Luther King Chorale for this performance. This powerful and moving work will be presented at Hyde Park’s Knox Presbyterian Church.

Originally premiered in 1969 for the dedication of Cincinnati’s Rockdale Temple, Dave Brubeck’s The Gates of Justice was a co-commission by CCM and the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, with a premiere conducted by the legendary Cincinnati Pops conductor and former CCM faculty member Erich Kunzel.

Brubeck’s second large-scale sacred composition, the piece was a plea for brotherhood between blacks and Jews during a period of strife in the 1960s, immediately following the 1968 death of Martin Luther King, Jr.

“It was a tremendous hit,” Kunzel recalled of the premiere in a Cincinnati Enquirer feature in February of 2004. “There was a standing ovation. I remember it very vividly; it was very exciting. Everyone loved it. It’s a very meaningful piece, and we were all so happy with what the result was.”

In that same story, Brubeck observed, “It was an emotional time. The idea was to bring these two cultures together, to show similarities rather than their differences.”

The Gates of Justice
 is a cantata based on biblical and Hebrew liturgical texts—together with quotations from Martin Luther King’s speeches, as well as from Negro spirituals and from the Jewish sage Hillel, and with lyrics by Brubeck’s wife, Iola, with whom he collaborated on this and other works.

Brubeck pointed to the explicit connection between the historical experience of the Jewish people and that of American blacks, and he expressed his conviction that both peoples possess traditional spiritual values with important meaning for contemporary society.

Performance Time
3 p.m. Sunday, April 19

Location

Knox Presbyterian Church
3400 Michigan Avenue
Cincinnati, OH 45208

Purchasing Tickets

Tickets to The Gates of Justice are $12 general, $6 non-UC students, UC students FREE. Tickets can be purchased in person at the CCM Box Office, over the telephone at 513-556-4183 or online at ccm.uc.edu/boxoffice/brubeck-gates-of-justice. Tickets will also be available beginning at 2 p.m. on the day of the performance at Knox Presbyterian Church; cash and check only at the door.

Parking and Directions

Please note that this performance does not take place on the campus of the University of Cincinnati. Knox Church is located on the corner of Observatory and Michigan, at 3400 Michigan Avenue, in the heart of Hyde Park in Cincinnati, Ohio.
