CCM alumni celebrate Bicentennial in Taiwan

A group of College-Conservatory of Music alumni presented a concert in Taiwan on Nov. 1 to celebrate the culmination of the University of Cincinnati’s Bicentennial year. As they developed the musical program prior to its performance, group members recalled many fond memories of their time in Cincinnati — a piece that one of the quartets had first played together on stage, to another that a trio had performed to win a competition.

Performed in Taipei City’s Eslite Performance Hall before an audience of more than 250, the concert was presented in collaboration with the UC Taiwan Alumni Club. Videos and photos of UC’s campus were projected throughout the performance, and greetings were shared by UC President Neville Pinto, UC Foundation President Peter Landgren, and Taiwan Alumni Club president Eric Chen, CEAS ’79. It was a memorable evening full of Bearcat spirit and beautiful music.

Through a gift from longtime supporters Dan Kautz and Woodrow (Woody) Uible, the University of Cincinnati will launch two new programs studying cryptocurrency and new financial technologies. The gifts will create an educational program with the Carl H. Lindner College of Business for UC students and name a public-private lab space within the new Digital Futures building, set to open in fall 2022. Dan Kautz is co-founder and co-owner of K&S Companies, a real estate development and management organization. Through his partnership with UC economics alumnus Woody Uible, BA ‘75, a principal at Bartlett Wealth Management and UC Foundation trustee, the Kautz-Uible Economics Institute was created at Lindner in 2019. “Through the Kautz family and their outstanding named institute, Dan and Woody have long been forward-thinking and generous friends to our university,” said UC President Neville G. Pinto. “We are deeply grateful for their ongoing partnership and this new lab that will open more doors for our students and bring new partnerships across our growing campus.”
