We are pleased to report that Soapbox Cincinnati has profiled DMA candidate Isaac Selya, exploring his wok with Queen City Chamber Opera in a feature length article!

An outlet for emerging artists to advance their careers, Queen City Chamber Opera is supported in part by CCM’s ArtsWave Community Partnership grant. Selya explains, “CCM and conservatories in general are teaching musicians to be entrepreneurial, to create their own jobs. So they’ve been very supportive because this is the type of thing that creates more jobs for their graduates.”
