In Memoriam: Arts Patron Louise Dieterle Nippert

Our condolences go out to the entire Nippert family as we learn of the passing of Louise Dieterle Nippert, loyal arts patron and proud UC alumna. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports on her passing and her legacy here.

“Acts of kindness are marked by selfless gestures that transform the lives of others. Louise Nippert’s selflessness was exhibited time after time at her alma mater, the University of Cincinnati.

For the College-Conservatory of Music, her support provided scores of vocal students with scholarships. She also contributed to the creation of CCM Village through her naming support of the Dieterle Vocal Arts Center.

The Nipperts also provided three endowed chairs to the university: The Nippert Chair of Law, The Dieterle Chair of Music named for Mrs. Nippert’s parents and the Thomas James Kelly Chair held by me as the Dean of CCM. Adjacent to the College-Conservatory of Music is another legacy left by the family, Nippert Stadium.

These selfless gestures will forever transform the lives of all of us who knew Mrs. Nippert and have been touched by her kindness and generosity.

We will miss her presence at performances and other events on our campus.” – Peter Landgren, Dean and Thomas James Kelly Professor of Music at CCM.
