The University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music stands among the premiere institutions in the world for performing and media arts education. CCM's faculty and staff and its state-of-the-art facilities make possible the professional training and exceptional education on which the future of the arts relies.
The College-Conservatory of Music is deeply grateful for the support of its contributors, but is still in need of funding. Your gifts provide scholarships to the College’s outstanding students; support the efforts of the Friends of CCM through student competition travel, faculty projects and other awards; bolster departments within the College through premier faculty appointments, guest artists and master classes.
In order to attract the very best students to CCM, sustaining scholarship funds is critical. Without the best students, CCM would not be able to maintain its exceptional international reputation.
Endowed Chairs and Faculty Support
Exceptional students are attracted to CCM in part because the faculty themselves are national leaders in their fields. CCM seeks funding for endowed chairs and faculty support that can sustain its level of faculty prominence and continue to attract the world's preeminent scholars, performers and teachers.
Distinguished Artist-Scholar Endowment
CCM's graduates are performing around the globe and teaching at the world's best schools. CCM must bring these arts leaders and others back to campus to infuse our students' educational experience with a greater understanding of the world beyond college life.
CCM is the largest performing arts presenter in the state of Ohio. The College showcases nearly 1,000 recitals, concerts, plays, musicals, operas and lectures each year. The quality of presentation is so consistently high that the public has grown to expect professional-quality work. Audience devotion is strong, and younger audiences are constantly being tapped. The potential for public visibility and recognition for sponsorship of any of CCM’s prominent performing arts series is enormous.
