The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) is delighted to announce its 2012-13 schedule of major events. From September through May, CCM will present a series of 50 performances spanning the spectrum of the performing and media arts.

This series begins with the internationally-acclaimed Ariel Quartet’s inaugural concert as CCM string-quartet-in-residence on Tuesday, Sept. 11 and concludes with a Sunday, May 5 performance by the Cincinnati Children’s Choir, gold medal-winners at the 2012 World Choir Games.

The 2012-13 performance schedule also features festivals showcasing the works of German composers Ludwig van Beethoven and Kurt Weill, jazz tributes to the music of Stevie Wonder and Frank Zappa, a dynamic revival of the rock musical Chess, a performance of J.S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor presented in conjunction with the Constella Festival and much more.

These creative collaborations are part of a year-long celebration, ushering in CCM’s second half-century as a college of the University of Cincinnati (UC). In August of 1962, the then century-old Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music joined UC as its 14th college. This merger created the institution now known as CCM, an institution built on the synergy of education, innovation and performance.

Sometimes you have to loosen your mind a little in order to truly find it.

• CCM Musical Theatre Mainstage Series •
Chess
Music by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Book by Richard Nelson
Aubrey Berg, director
Stephen Goers, musical director
Diane Lala, choreographer

Loosely based on the lives of chess grandmasters Bobby Fischer and Anatoly Karpov, Chess involves a romantic triangle between two top players (an American and a Russian) and the woman who manages one and falls in love with the other. With music by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson (of ABBA fame) and lyricist Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita and The Lion King), the rock opera plays out against the Cold War struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union in which each wants to win international tournaments for purposes of propaganda. An intriguing tale of romantic rivalries, cunning gamesmanship and political tensions, Chess has what Time calls “one of the best rock scores ever produced.”
Location: Corbett Auditorium

No other choral-orchestral work in the Western canon is comparable in breadth of musical styles.
Location: Christ Church Cathedral; Fourth & Sycamore Streets, downtown Cincinnati

The Threepenny Opera
Music by Kurt Weill
Book and lyrics by Bertolt Brecht
English Adaptation by Marc Blitzstein
Robin Guarino, director
Roger Grodsky, musical director
Patti James, choreographer

Adapted from an eighteenth-century ballad opera by John Gay, The Threepenny Opera offers a Marxist critique of the capitalist world. Set in an anachronistic Victorian London, The Threepenny Opera is a work of epic theatre, challenging conventional notions of property and theatre. Part satire, part shock effects, part aesthetic innovation, part moral indictment and part sheer theatrical diversion, it asks a still-relevant question: "Who is the bigger criminal: the man who robs a bank or the man who founds one?" Deeply influenced by jazz, its opening lament, "Mack the Knife,” has become a standard recorded by Louis Armstrong, Bobby Darin, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé and countless others. Since its opening, The Threepenny Opera has been translated into 18 languages and performed more than 10,000 times. Mature subject matter.
Location: Patricia Corbett Theater

Created with a National Endowment for the Arts Choreography Fellowship, Michael Tevlin’s “…And Ye Shall Be as Gods…” depicts the story of Adam and Eve, danced to Igor Stravinsky’s Serenade in A for piano with original scenic design by C.D. Higgins. In addition, Shellie Cash premieres That was Then – This is Now juxtaposing lute, English Madrigals sung by the CCM Chamber Choir, with music by Cincinnati’s own DJ Yard Sale.

“Brahms’ Rinaldo and Britten’s Spring Symphony

Rinaldo, for tenor, men's chorus and orchestra with a text of Goethe, is an extended dramatic scene of a crusader knight freed from enchantment to a sorceress by his fellow knights. Spring Symphony for soloists, mixed chorus, children's choir, and orchestra, features texts of various poets, mostly English poets from the 16th and 17th centuries. In Britten’s own words, Spring Symphony signifies “the progress of Winter to Spring and the reawakening of the earth and life which that means.”
