One of the events I’m most looking forward to this month is CCM’s Moveable Feast on January 17th. I have my ticket already.
Here’s what we can expect (courtesy of a press release issued this morning):
Cincinnati’s premiere fundraiser returns in early 2014 when the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) presents “A Moveable Feast.” The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 17, and this year’s “Feast” celebrates the theme “Starstruck.”
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 enjoy backstage tours and plan their own schedule of 20-minute samplings of student entertainment, including Jazz, Musical Theatre, Piano, Opera, Drama, Dance, Orchestra and Chamber Winds performances, along with E-Media video productions and much more.
This year’s artistic menu also includes performances by the Steel Drum Band and by CCM’s internationally acclaimed string quartet-in-residence, the Ariel Quartet, which will perform selections from its upcoming Beethoven Cycle—a series of six concerts in Corbett Auditorium in January, February and March of 2014.
The evening’s program will begin in Corbett Auditorium with a prelude performance featuring the Jazz Ensemble. The “Feast” 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. Tickets to last year’s event sold out in record time, so act now to secure your place at the “Feast.”
Tickets not only get you into this unique event, but also get you membership to the exclusive “Friends of CCM” a volunteer organization that provides scholarship assistance to the students of CCM. I know some of these students personally and I can promise you that this is money well spent.
To reserve your tickets, please go here or call (513) 556-2100. See you there!
