Segments of CCM's Musical Theatre Freshman Showcase were recorded at iconic locations throughout the city in collaboration with Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati, Imperial Theatre Mohawk Arts Center, Memorial Hall, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and Washington Park.

CCM's Musical Theatre Freshman Showcase is produced and directed by Associate Professor Vincent DeGeorge, with music direction, arrangements, orchestration, mix and production by Assistant Professor Stephen Goers. Music recording is provided by CCM student Aaron Harris Woodstein. CCM alum Raven Thomas serves as content advisor. CCM students Nate Jones and Madison Mosley provide editing and digital imaging. Camera work is provided by students Jeffery Cornelius, Nate Jones, Madison Mosley, Nick Pattarini and August Bagg.

Student created showcases bookend the training experience for CCM’s Musical Theatre majors. A Freshman Showcase is traditionally presented in Cincinnati, while a Senior Showcase is presented for agents and casting directors in New York City. CCM curated the industry's first Senior Showcase in 1993, and was the first college to introduce a digital showcase experience in 2020. The 2021 Freshman and Senior Showcases are both being presented virtually in accordance with COVID Careful protocols.

The Freshman Showcase is the culmination of a year's worth of work. Students chose the songs, wrote their monologues and were involved in every aspect of the planning, production and post-production. CCM's full-length Musical Theatre Class of 2024 Freshman Showcase received a preview broadcast for family and friends on April 17, 2021, and will be released to the general public later this spring once post-production is completed.

CCM's streaming series continues with Spring Opera Gala concerts

Event: June 17, 2021 7:30 PM

The UC College-Conservatory of Music's virtual performance series continues with a pair of Spring Opera Gala concerts, which will be released back-to-back at 7:30 p.m. EDT on June 17 and 18. CCM's Spring Opera Gala is a double-casted production: the same repertoire is performed during both broadcasts, but each features a different cast of singers performing arias and duets from such classic Italian operas as Gaetano Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore, Gioacchino Rossini’s Otello and Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci. Each concert stream also begins with a spirited performance of the Overture to Rossini’s L’Italiana in Algeri by the CCM Philharmonia and concludes with a rousing rendition of the “Sola, sola in buio loco” sextet from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Don Giovanni.
