Greater Cincinnati Chinese Music Society is an independent, nonprofit organization. Its mission is to promote Chinese culture through music and education.
This local nonprofit organization has been introducing Chinese culture to the Cincinnati community through music since it was founded in October, 1994. Originally designed as an annual cultural event to celebrate the Chinese New Year, Greater Cincinnati Chinese Music Society New Year Concert becomes a tradition showcasing both traditional and contemporary Chinese music. In 2003, we received support from The Fine Arts Fund for a music/education project that involved members of The Cincinnati Junior Strings and the Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra. Members of these orchestras enjoyed the rare opportunity to rehearse and perform Chinese orchestral music and learning about aspects of Chinese cultures. Participants of this project also participated in a special scholarship competition, and eight young musicians received scholarships towards their orchestral studies. In 2004, we continued our mission of encouraging greater community involvement in the study of Chinese music by recruiting some of our young musicians to serve as interns for the New Year concert.
As we continually meet the challenges of producing stellar quality performances, generating more funding to sponsor in-depth learning opportunities for young musicians of Chinese music and culture, we ask for you continual support by donating to Greater Cincinnati Chinese Music Society. We also welcome young musicians to apply for our student scholarship. Please contact us for more detailed information.
