Corbett Auditorium will receive new seats as part of the renovations.

$15M Infrastructure Project Renovates CCM Performance Venues

A $15 million renovation project will upgrade the overall technology of CCM performance venues to advance the working and learning experiences of students. Launched in spring 2016, the renovations have temporarily closed many of CCM’s theaters, but venues are scheduled to reopen for performances during the fall 2017 semester.

The renovation project will upgrade theater controls, stage rigging and lighting, as well as install new audio and video systems in CCM’s Corbett Auditorium, Patricia Corbett Theater, Cohen Family Studio Theater, Robert J. Werner Recital Hall and Watson Hall.

“This project ensures that CCM students are working with updated, professional-level theater technology,” Senior Director of Performance Operations Ray Dobson says. “A majority of patrons may not be able to discern a large part of the behind-the-scene renovations, but the upgrades directly impact and improve the day-to-day working and learning experiences of our students. Our audiences should be pleased with the updated seating and new energy-efficient L.E.D. house lights.”

Renovations will improve connectivity between all of CCM’s performance venues. Upgrades include the installation of new video monitoring systems, intercom systems and an inter-venue technical production communication system. The project also includes the installation of fiber optic cables that will make live streaming future CCM events possible.

New lighting and a new stage will be installed in Corbett Auditorium as part of the renovations, along with new carpet, seating and a new stage curtain. The seating in Patricia Corbett Theater will be refurbished, and a new carpet will be installed in the theater’s lobby. Patricia Corbett Theater will also have updated heating, ventilation and air conditioning. Watch the below video to see workers install the seats in Patricia Corbett Theater:

New seating will also be installed in the Cohen Family Studio Theater and Watson Hall. Additionally, Watson Hall will receive a new carpet and an acoustic sound panel.

The Robert J. Werner Recital Hall and Watson Hall have been reopened for CCM performances. Renovations to the Cohen Family Studio Theater are ongoing, but it has reopened for public events.

Patricia Corbett Theater has reopened for CCM performances. The venue’s first concert of the 2017-18 season featured the CCM Philharmonia on Sept. 8. On Sept. 12, the CCM Jazz Orchestra will play a tribute concert to the Rolling Stones in the refurbished venue.

Corbett Auditorium will reopen for CCM performances by December. Audiences will be able to experience the renovated venue at the annual Feast of Carols performances on Dec. 2 and 3.

CCM’s state-of-the-art facilities provide students with professional-level working and learning environments to prepare them for future careers. As the college enters its 150th year, this renovation leads CCM into a new era as a top training center for the performing and media arts.

CCM Welcomes Acclaimed Violinist Augustin Hadelich for Master Class on March 12

Award winning violinist Augustin Hadelich.

Award winning violinist Augustin Hadelich.

CCM hosts world-renowned violinist Augustin Hadelich for a master class at 11 a.m. next Saturday, March 12, in Watson Hall. The Grammy Award-winning musician will work with CCM string students during the two hour session, which is open to the general public.

The visit coincides with Hadelich’s weekend engagement with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, which will see him perform the famed Violin Concerto by Expressionist composer Alban Berg with the CSO on March 11, 12 and 13.

Hadelich will also join CSO Music Director Louis Langrée for a “Stories in Concert” event at Music Hall at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 13. For more information about the events with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, please visit http://cincinnatisymphony.org.

About Augustin Hadelich
Within months after being awarded the inaugural Warner Music Prize, Augustin Hadelich has just won a 2016 Grammy in the category “Best Classical Instrumental Solo” for his recording of the Dutilleux Violin Concerto, L’arbre des songes, firmly establishing him as one of the great violinists of his generation. His remarkable consistency throughout the repertoire, from Bach and Beethoven to Ligeti and Adès, is seldom encountered in a single artist.

Highlights of Hadelich’s 2015-16 season include debuts with the Chicago Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra in Carnegie Hall and the Finnish Radio Orchestra, as well as return performances with the London Philharmonic, The Philadelphia Orchestra and the symphonies of Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Louisville, Milwaukee, New Jersey, Oregon, Seattle, Utah and Vancouver. He has also previously collaborated with such renowned conductors as Roberto Abbado, Marc Albrecht, Marin Alsop, Herbert Blomstedt, Lionel Bringuier, Justin Brown, James Conlon, Christoph von Dohnányi and Jaap van Zweden, among numerous others.

Also an enthusiastic recitalist, Hadelich’s numerous appearances include Carnegie Hall, Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), The Frick Collection (New York), Kennedy Center (Washington, D.C.), Kioi Hall (Tokyo), the Louvre and the chamber music societies of Detroit, La Jolla, Philadelphia, Seattle and Vancouver. His chamber music partners have included Inon Barnatan, Jeremy Denk, James Ehnes, Alban Gerhardt, Richard Goode, Gary Hoffman, Kim Kashkashian, Robert Kulek, Cho-Liang Lin, Midori, Charles Owen, Vadim Repin, Mitsuko Uchida, Joyce Yang, along with the members of the Guarneri and Juilliard quartets.

Hadelich’s first major orchestral recording, featuring the violin concertos of Jean Sibelius and Thomas Adès (Concentric Paths), with Hannu Lintu conducting the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, was released to great acclaim in March 2014 on the AVIE label. The disc was nominated for a Gramophone Award and was listed by NPR on their Top 10 Classical CDs of 2014. He has recorded three previous albums for AVIE: Flying Solo, a CD of masterworks for solo violin; Echoes of Paris, featuring French and Russian repertoire influenced by Parisian culture in the early 20th century; and Histoire du Tango, a program of violin-guitar works in collaboration with Pablo Villegas. A recent recording of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto and Bartók’s Concerto No. 2 with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra under Miguel Harth-Bedoya was released on AVIE in the spring of 2015.  For the Seattle Symphony with Ludovic Morlot, Mr. Hadelich has recorded Dutilleux’s Violin Concerto, “L’arbre des songes,” on Seattle Symphony MEDIA.

The 2006 Gold Medalist of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, Hadelich is the recipient of an Avery Fisher Career Grant (2009), a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship in the UK (2011), and Lincoln Center’s Martin E. Segal Award (2012). Most recently, he has been named winner of the first Warner Music Prize (2015).

The son of German parents, Hadelich was born and raised in Italy. A resident of New York City since 2004 and now an American citizen, he holds an Artist Diploma from the Juilliard School, where he was a student of Joel Smirnoff.  He plays on the 1723 “Ex-Kiesewetter” Stradivari violin, on loan from Clement and Karen Arrison through the Stradivari Society of Chicago.

PENTECOST
Written by David Edgar
Richard E. Hess, director

A play of politics and ideas, Pentecost details the discovery of a painting stunningly similar to Giotto di Bondone’s The Lamentation in an abandoned church in Eastern Europe. If proven to pre-date the master’s work, the fresco will revolutionize Western Art. A dramatic power struggle ensues, as representatives from the worlds of art history, religion and politics stake their claims for the ultimate prize. The unexpected arrival of twelve asylum seekers sets events spiraling toward an explosive climax. Described by the Daily Telegraph as “funny, frightening and deeply moving,” this powerful play by the Tony Award-winning adapter of Nicholas Nickleby and author of numerous plays won the Evening Standard Award for Best Play of 1995.

A co-production between Know Theatre of Cincinnati and CCM’s Division of Theatre Arts, Production and Arts Administration
THE HUNCHBACK OF SEVILLE
Written by Charise Castro Smith
Brant Russell, director

An absurdist play amped to the max, The Hunchback of Seville delves into the lives of the monarchy and citizens of 15th-century Spain: the infamous Queen Isabella, the spoiled Infanta Juana (the future Queen of Spain), and the Muslim Talib who is desperately attempting to avoid persecution at the hands of the Spanish Inquisition. All of this revolves around Maxima, a mathematical genius and adopted royal family member who is locked away in a tower and pines for Talib’s love. Smith’s play uses this dark, comedic plot both for laughs and as a serious means to examine sanitized history and human rights injustices both in Spain and the new world that Columbus “discovered.” This exciting collaboration brings CCM drama students to Know Theatre’s stage for a history lesson you won’t get in college!

SHALIMAR THE CLOWN
A collaboration between CCM Opera, Cincinnati Opera and Opera Theatre of St. Louis
Co-artistic directors Robin Guarino and Marcus Küchle
Music by Jack Perla
Libretto by Rajiv Joseph
Directed by James Robinson

Funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CCM Opera and Cincinnati Opera present a rare behind-the-scenes look at the creation of an original work. An opera based on the novel of the same name by Salman Rushdie, Shalimar the Clown revolves around a child named India who loses her father—a United States diplomat to India’s namesake country—to assassination at the hands of his former chauffeur Shalimar. The reasons that led the former clown to murder India’s father tell of the fragility of human life and love, detailing how complicated and non-simplistic our stories are, how large the consequences of our actions can loom, and how great joys can turn into unbearable sadness and senseless tragedy.
Location: TBA

Lydia Brown, music director and piano
Robin Guarino and Marcus Shields, stage directors
William Bolcom’s career is storied: famed pianist, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Ragtime revivalist and acclaimed professor at the University of Michigan. Arnold Weinstein, a self-proclaimed “theatre poet,” won acclaim as a lyricist for famed musicals such as Metamorphoses. Brought together by Darius Milhaud, the duo had a prolific partnership from 1964 until Weinstein’s death in 2005. Their collaborations included famed operas such as McTeagueA Wedding and others. Among these works were four sets of cabaret songs written between the 1970s and 1990s. CCM Opera is proud to present the first complete performance of all 24 of these cabaret songs.

Music by Richard Rodgers
Book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Based on the play Liliom by Ferenc Molnar
As Adapted by Benjamin F. Glazer
Original Dances by Agnes de Mille
Diane Lala, director and choreographer
Roger Grodsky, musical director

Set in a Maine coastal village toward the end of the 19th century, Carousel is the story of carefree carnival barker Billy Bigelow and his reckless adventures with women, gambling and the wrong side of the law. Billy loses his job just as he learns that his wife is pregnant and, desperate to provide a decent life for his family, is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent “up there.” Fifteen years later, Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day and encounters the daughter he never knew. How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. Declared “Best Musical of the Century” by Time Magazine in 1999, it’s easy to understand why Carousel became Rodgers and Hammerstein’s personal favorite.

Music by Franz Lehár

A glorious early-20th century operetta (a forerunner to the great musicals), The Merry Widow tells a fizzy tale of star-crossed lovers and political shenanigans in a fantastical Paris. Baron Zeta of Pontevedro must prevent the wealthy widow Hanna Glawari from marrying a foreigner; if she does, all of her wealth will leave Pontevedro, thus bankrupting the country. Will Hanna’s former flame Count Danilovich—a debonair rake—win her heart again, or will she choose a flirtatious Frenchman instead? Farce, romance and jealousy abound in this sparkling romp. Sung in English.
