CCM Celebrates Bernstein Centennial with Yearlong Festival

During its 150th anniversary season, CCM commemorates the 100th birthday of cultural icon Leonard Bernstein with an unprecedented series of events.

Celebration is in the air at CCM as the 150-year-old performing and media arts institution prepares to commemorate the 100th birthday of an American icon. In 2018, CCM will stage a year-long festival memorializing the legacy of composer, conductor, educator and activist/humanitarian Leonard Bernstein. Beginning on January 26, 2018, this wide-ranging festival will span two concert seasons and include over a dozen major performances, making it one of the world’s most comprehensive Bernstein Centennial Celebrations!

Leonard Bernstein at 100 logo.CCM’s Bernstein Festival features the talents of students and faculty members from throughout the college, united in a celebration of the life and career of one monumental artist. Bernstein, who would have turned 100 years old on Aug. 25, 2018, was a towering figure of 20th-century music and culture. He achieved international acclaim as the composer of West Side Story, Candide, On the Town and other stage and orchestral works. The celebrated conductor of the New York Philharmonic and other leading orchestras, Bernstein was equally esteemed as an educator whose televised Young People’s Concerts with the New York Philharmonic created generations of music lovers.

CCM’s festival showcases many of Bernstein’s signature works, including the iconic “Symphonic Dances” from West Side Story, the monumental Age of Anxiety symphony for piano and orchestra, Songfest, the Symphonic Suite from Academy Award-winning film On the Waterfront, poignantly satirical one-act opera Trouble in Tahiti and much more.

In addition to Bernstein’s compositions, CCM’s festival also showcases music by Aaron Copland, Roy Harris, David Diamond and other composers who were championed by Bernstein through his work as a conductor and musical ambassador. According to Interim Dean bruce mcclung, “These works by Bernstein’s colleagues and the younger American composers who he promoted will help provide a cultural and musical context for CCM’s festival.”

For CCM Director of Orchestral Studies Mark Gibson, programming this festival has been fulfilling both artistically and personally. “Lenny is the reason I am on the podium today and have been in the halls of CCM every year for the past 20 years,” says Gibson, who studied with Bernstein at the Tanglewood Music Center as the Bernstein Conducting Fellow in 1986.

A college-wide celebration of Bernstein’s artistic output and ongoing influence seemed like a natural fit for CCM’s ongoing Sesquicentennial Celebration, too. “During this same year that CCM celebrates the 150th anniversary of its founding, Lenny would have celebrated his 100th birthday. Let’s do it for him, let’s throw him a party all year long.”

The festivities begin on Friday, Jan. 26, 2018, as Gibson leads the CCM Philharmonia in a concert featuring Bernstein’s “Symphonic Dances” from West Side Story along with Lenny’s “anthem,” the beloved Overture to Candide. The concert also features CCM Eminent Scholar of Chamber Music and Piano James Tocco in Bernstein’s highly dramatic second symphony, The Age of Anxiety. Like Gibson, Tocco was mentored by Bernstein earlier in his career, working closely with him on the world-premiere recording of Bernstein’s complete works for solo piano in 1983. Tocco has performed The Age of Anxiety with orchestras around the world and recorded it with Leonard Slatkin and the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

CCM’s Bernstein Festival continues through March with performances by the Opera d’Arte undergraduate opera series, Wind Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Concert Orchestra, Chorale and much more. The festival then resumes in September with another series of events leading up to the CCM Jazz Orchestra’s performance of Stan Kenton’s West Side Story on Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018.

Tune In! Enjoy a preview of the festival courtesy of WVXU’s Around Cincinnati by visiting wvxu.org/post/celebrating-together-150-years-ccm-100th-birthday-bernstein.

Some of CCM’s Bernstein Festival performances are free and open to the general public, while others require paid admission. Audiences can also purchase the “Bernstein Experience” package, which provides access to every ticketed festival event and comes with additional perks. View complete schedule and ticketing information for CCM’s Bernstein Festival below.

CCM Prep Presents Fall Youth Ballet Concert on Dec. 8 and 9

Featuring talented students from ages nine through adult, the CCM Youth Ballet Companies perform the annual Fall Youth Ballet Concert on Dec. 8-9, 2017.

CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement presents the Fall Youth Ballet Concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 8, 2017, and Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017. Jonnie Lynn Jacobs-Percer directs the mixed-repertoire ballet performance, which features the students of the CCM Youth Ballet Companies.

The annual dance concert features talented CCM Prep students from ages nine through adult, performing traditional and contemporary works choreographed by CCM Prep students and faculty. Tickets are available through the CCM Box Office.

The program opens with Strangers in the Night, set to music by Frank Sinatra with choreography by CCM Prep student Anna Faist. CCM Prep students will then perform an excerpt from Napoli, also known as The Fisherman and His Bride. This story ballet, originally choreographed in 1842 by Danish choreographer August Bournonville, tells the tale of an Italian girl who falls in love with a poor fisherman. The pair finally wed after they endure many trials and tribulations, and their friends present special dances at their wedding. These wedding dances will be performed at the Fall Youth Ballet Concert.

The main highlight of the performance is Babes in Toyland, featuring music by Victor Herbert with choreography and direction by CCM Prep ballet faculty members Thomas Bell, Ana Bird, Heather Cameron-Johnson, Jonnie Lynn Jacobs-Percer, Sergey Pakharev and Tricia Sundbeck. Originally an operetta, this work focuses on Mary-Mary Quite Contrary and Tom-Tom the Piper’s Son, two residents of Mother Goose Land. They hope to get married, but the sinister town miser, Barnaby, has other plans for them. They encounter mischievous trees, an evil toy maker and other conniving characters along the way, but ultimately the couple finds their happily ever after.

You can see the CCM Fall Youth Ballet Concert this weekend in CCM’s Patricia Corbett Theater. Single tickets are $15 general admission, $10 for non-UC students and FREE for UC students with valid ID. Visit the CCM Box Office website or call 513-556-4183 for more information.
