CCM’s acclaimed Jazz Ensemble made its Jazz at Lincoln Center debut last week, kicking off this month’s CINCYinNYC activities. If you were unable to catch any of the ensemble’s three sets at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola on May 6, you can enjoy video highlights courtesy of WCPO’s Matt Peiken here.

The Cincinnati Enquirer‘s Janelle Gelfand also provided a recap of the evening and declared, “if the enthusiastic response of the sold-out crowd at Dizzy’s club is any indication, New York is in for a treat.” You can read her full review here.

CCM’s CINCYinNYC offerings continue at 7:30 p.m. this evening (May 12), as the 92nd Street Y presents the Ariel Quartet. You can learn more about that performance here.

WCPO Cincinnati recently profiled CCM student composer and percussionist Ty Niemeyer!

In the video feature Niemeyer discussed his composition iublio, a fanfare for brass and percussion, which was composed in honor of the Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra‘s 50th anniversary and performed at a recent CSYO concert.

“It’s not often an organization like this asks you to write a piece, so it’s definitely a very nice opportunity to have, especially for an organization I was involved with in high school,” Niemeyer says.
