CCM declared ‘Best of Cincinnati’ by CityBeat
CityBeat’s 2023 issue spotlights CCM’s musicals and its media production program
CityBeat recently published its annual Best of Cincinnati® issue, and several CCM programs and performances were recognized in this year's roundup.
CityBeat staff awarded CCM "Best Musical Hat Trick" for the combined accomplishments of last spring's production of Sunday in the Park with George and last fall's productions of She Loves Me and Something Rotten! "The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music’s musical theater department demonstrated the irreplaceable gift of live performance with three outstanding productions in 2022," CityBeat's staff declared in their writeup. "It all was better than Broadway," they concluded, "and at a fraction of the ticket price." Learn more about CCM's "Best Musical Hat Trick" award. CCM's 2022-23 series of musicals concludes April 13-16 with the award-winning rock musical Spring Awakening; all performances are sold out.
CCM's Media Production Division also gained a coveted spot in this year's list of Cincinnati's best sports and recreations offerings, receiving the "Best Student Program with Actual National Exposure" award for the division's innovative Sports Media Production curriculum. Thanks to a unique partnership between CCM and UC Athletics, students have been able to put their education into action by producing live, multi-camera sports broadcasts for ESPN+ and ESPNU. "It’s a unique opportunity—no other school in the American Athletic Conference uses student media teams linked to a curriculum to produce live feeds for the network," CityBeat's staff noted. They added, "After just a couple of years, it already has generated jobs for program alums at ESPN, with the Bengals and at other big-name sports media entities."

CCM has had a regular presence in CityBeat's annual Best of Cincinnati® lists. In 2022 CCM's production of The Marriage of Figaro won "Best Standing Ovation" and CCM ensemble-in-residence Cincinnati Youth Choir took third place in the "Best Local Vocal Arts Group" category. In 2020 CCM's production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time won "Best Play (Student/Community)" while Blind Injustice—a co-production between Cincinnati Opera, CCM and UC College of Law's Ohio Innocence Project—received the "Best World Premiere Opera to Open Your Eyes" award. That year CityBeat staff also recognized CCM students who produced and acted in The Flick at Clifton's Esquire movie theater with the "Best Play Held in an Unconventional Setting" award.
