CSI was founded to bring a concentrated and cohesive source of art song to the greater Cincinnati area. Dedicated to providing unique experiences through the power of music and text, each performance creates a sense of relevance and active engagement between performers and audiences. This is achieved not only through song, but also through spoken dialogue by the artists, which provides a context and historical background that connects audiences to the repertoire. Concerts take place at different venues throughout the Queen City in order to connect with its many vibrant communities and explore all it has to offer.
For example, CSI content includes:
- Concerts featuring singers and pianists of national renown, both staged in Cincinnati and from stages beyond our area.
- Innovation of art song, commissioning and premiering new works to help lead the genre into the twenty-first century and connect closely with today’s audiences.
- A rich suite of digital resources, such as educational webinars, live interviews with living composers, and innovative digital performance projects.
I hope you enjoy exploring this resource! We welcome feedback about what you think of its usefulness as a tool to support teaching, research, and performance (email@example.com).
