CCM shares update on initial spring 2022 events

January events impacted by UC's temporary switch to remote operations at the start of the semester

The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music shares updates to its January schedule of free and ticketed events in response to UC's temporary transition to remote operations

Due to the recent increase in local, state, and national COVID-19 cases, and the high transmission rate of the Omicron variant, UC will briefly transition online January 5, 2022 and pivot back to full in-person activities on Monday, January 24, 2022. Based on this update and in an effort to maintain the health and safety of our community, all CCM public performances scheduled now through January 23, 2022 have been cancelled or rescheduled.

Student recitals scheduled before January 24 will be rescheduled. Students affected by this change should consult with their faculty, and we will provide flexible alternatives including the option to submit a recorded recital in place of an in-person recital.

Moveable Feast on January 21 will be restructured as a virtual event; additional details will become available on the Moveable Feast website.

Additionally, the transition to online operations impacts rehearsal schedules and preparations for a small number of future performances at CCM; please see performance-specific details below. Ticket holders affected by event cancellations will be contacted by CCM’s Box Office staff with additional information.

We will continue to announce our 2021-22 schedule of public performances in two-month intervals — audiences will learn more about our programming for March, April and May events in February! Performance information and updates will be shared on the CCM website and in our Next OnStage e-newsletter.

Be the first to know about future ticket on-sale dates and more: sign up for our email list at ccm.uc.edu/subscribe.

The health and safety of our community remains our top priority. Once in-person activities resume on January 24, performance venues will continue to be reduced to 50% capacity and all individuals, including audience members and performers, are required to wear facial coverings indoors, following guidelines from the CDC and UC's physician-led COVID response team. Additional measures may be in place as conditions develop based on guidance from the CDC and UC's physician-led COVID response team. Visit the UC Public Health website and CCM's COVID-19 website for additional information and updates.

THE MINOR-MAJOR: SCHEMA THEORY, PHRASE STRUCTURE AND MUSICAL FORM 
John Rice, guest lecturer 
The Minor-Major schema occurs when a statement in the minor is immediately repeated in the relative major. The Minor-Major schema suggests some intriguing questions about phrase structure and form. Should we think of manifestations of this schema as periods? How does music that begins with a move away from the tonic handle the opening material when it returns later in a movement? In surveying the use of the Minor-Major from Corelli to Beethoven, John Rice will suggest some answers to these and other questions.
