UC's CCM announces 'Furnish the Future' seat-naming campaign

With a pledge payable over five years, you can have a plaque bearing your name or the name of someone you choose to honor displayed on a seat in Corbett Auditorium

Arts advocates have a new way of supporting the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) in its mission to fuel the future of the arts. Purchase a commemorative plaque through the Furnish the Future campaign and your support will be displayed on one of the newly-installed seats in CCM's Corbett Auditorium.

With a pledge payable over five years, supporters of the Furnish the Future seat-naming campaign can play a leading role in continuing to provide a first-class facility for CCM's students, faculty members and audiences. In recognition of your support, a plaque bearing your name or the name of someone you choose to honor or memorialize will adorn one of the seats in the beautifully-renovated Corbett Auditorium.

Further action is required to make this video accessible

The below criteria must be satisfied:

A Cause For Applause

Your support is cause for applause in CCM's Corbett Auditorium.

Originally opened in 1967, Corbett Auditorium has provided a space for generations of aspiring artists to refine their skills. Countless alumni have made their debuts on the stage of Corbett Auditorium and hundreds of thousands of audience members have been whisked away on musical journeys in its seats. The iconic performance hall was recently renovated as part of a $15-million slate of enhancements to CCM Village, ensuring that CCM will continue to have the state-of-the-art facilities required to educate and inspire future generations of world-class performers, producers, educators, researchers, composers, designers, technicians and media personnel.

Funds raised through the Furnish the Future campaign will help CCM continue to recruit leading student scholars, provide travel opportunities for students and faculty members and support special collaborative projects at the college.
