Monteverdi from CCM to premiere Sunday on CET Arts

CET, Cincinnati’s PBS station, is excited to announce that we will premiere Monteverdi from CCM at 8pm Sunday, May 12, on CET Arts. This program is part of a new collaboration between CCM and CET, which will bring CCM’s world-class performances to CET viewers throughout Greater Cincinnati.

 

Monteverdi from CCM was shot on location in CCM Village in November of 2012. The performance features CCM’s Chamber Choir, Early Music faculty members, students and guest artists presenting highlights from Claudio Monteverdi’s Madrigals of Love and War and Selva Morale e Spirituale. Guest artist continuo members include Michael Leopold, theorbo; Elizabeth Motter, Baroque harp; Jennifer Roig-Francolí, Baroque violin; James Lambert, contrabass and gamba; Yaël Senamaud, Baroque violin; and Rodney Stucky, archlute and Baroque guitar. Support for CCM’s Monteverdi project was provided by the Willard and Jean Mulford Charitable Fund of the Cambridge Charitable Foundation.

 

This CET Arts program is made possible for broadcast by: The Louise Dieterle Nippert Musical Arts Fund with additional support from The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation; Sallie and Randolph Wadsworth; The Eleanora C.U. Alms Trust, Fifth Third Bank, Trustee; Macy’s; and The Wohlgemuth Herschede Foundation.

About The Monteverdi Project and CCM: The Monteverdi Project was conceived and initiated by Earl Rivers, CCM’s Director of Choral Studies, following the success of CCM’s Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 concert in November 2010. The Project has since engaged regional, national and international Early Music artist-performers and specialists to coach, rehearse and perform with fifty talented graduate and undergraduate CCM students in highlights from the collections of sacred music and secular music by the greatest Italian composer of the Early Baroque, Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643).
