A MOVEABLE FEAST Returns to CCM Tonight
Cincinnati's premier fundraiser returns in early 2015 when the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) presents "A Moveable Feast!"
Hosted by the Friends of CCM volunteer organization, this unique benefit event showcases students from all corners of CCM in an evening of live entertainment and by-the-bite cuisine. The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 23, and this year's "Feast" celebrates the theme: ONECCM: UnCompromising Excellence.
A star-powered showcase of CCM's world-class performing and media arts programs and state-of-the-art facilities, the fundraiser features samplings of artistic and culinary delights throughout CCM Village.
Guests can plan their own schedule of 20-minute samplings of student entertainment, including Jazz,Musical Theatre, Piano, Opera, Drama, Dance, Harpsichord and Saxophone, Choraland Orchestra performances, along with tours of CCM's Electronic Media facilities, Lighting Designlabs and other backstage areas. Back by popular demand, this year's artistic menu also includes performances by CCM's Steel Drum Band and artists-in-residence the Ariel Quartet.
New for 2015, A Moveable Feast will offer up suggested "Artistic Tracks" for patrons to follow throughout the evening. Newcomers and seasoned veterans alike can enjoy these pre-planned pathways through CCM Village. Learn more about this year's Artistic Tracks by visiting ccm.uc.edu/tracks4feast.
The evening's program will begin in Corbett Auditorium with a prelude performance featuring the CCM Jazz Ensemble and will conclude with a performance by the Philharmonia Orchestra.
Cocktails and dinner-by-the-bite provided by Jeff Thomas Catering will be served throughout the evening.
