OHIO VALLEY VOICES: INNOVATION MEETS EDUCATION

Presented by Maria Sentelik, Executive Director

Cynthia Browne 0 2189 Article rating: No rating

Ohio Valley Voices was established nearly two decades ago with the goal of teaching children with hearing losses to listen and speak clearly. Ms. Sentelik, an audiologist, will share the details that have made her small school based in Loveland so successful. She’ll answer questions like, “At what age do you begin to teaching deaf children? How do they hear? Why is there no lip reading or sign language like at other schools?” This organization is the recipient of a 2021-2022 endowment gift from The College Club of Cincinnati.

Directed by Bob Coil

Cynthia Browne 0 2997 Article rating: No rating

For over 25 years, the Polished Brass has been providing music for tri-state audiences. Backed by its large library of brass quintet music and with talented musicians to bring it all to life, it’s easy to see why this group is called on so often for summer concerts, weddings, graduations, and more. It was dubbed the “instant orchestra” by Jim Knippenberg, former Cincinnati Enquirer columnist, because it came together so quickly. Don’t miss this great time to sit back and relax! https://polished-brass.com.

CINCINNATI BOYCHOIR: RHYTHMS OF CELEBRATION

DIRECTED BY JASON HOLMES, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, AND LISA PETERS, ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR

Glenna Baumbaugh 0 1844 Article rating: No rating

 

Cincinnati Boychoir will present a joyful concert of holiday music!  It is a choir for male youth of all musical abilities from across the Greater Cincinnati Region.  Founded in 1965, the Boychoir is a teaching and performing organization that offers musical enrichment, performance, and touring opportunities.  Our vocal ensembles are directed by professional music educators who teach a curriculum not only of musical skills but cultural appreciation, empathy, self-discipline, leadership, mentorship, and a spirit of volunteerism.  Boys from grades 3-12 attend weekly rehearsals, and commit from 6 weeks to a full academic year. Each week, boys come together for a combined rehearsal in which older boys are empowered as big brothers to younger boys, teaching them the nuts and bolts of music and singing, as well as how to tie their bowtie and more. We present approximately twenty annual performances in the greater Cincinnati region, and have performed concerts and completed residencies both at home and abroad. We strive to make the Boychoir accessible to all boys, regardless of race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic need, so they all have the opportunity to experience the life changing impact of immersive arts participation.  Patrick Apfelbeck is their Program Coordinator.

Childhood Food Solutions

Presented by Tony Fairhead, Executive Director, and Lisa Hyde-Hill, Board Chair

Carolyn Laemmle 0 4626 Article rating: No rating

It’s been estimated that about half of families living in poverty in Cincinnati don’t have access to sufficient food, especially during periods when children are not in school and don’t receive free or reduced-price meals. Yet, the problem largely remains silent behind closed doors, because parents don’t want to admit they lack adequate resources for such basic needs. Childhood Food Solutions was created to help fill the gap through programs designed to provide food to children in areas of poverty, high-crime and food insecurity in our community. The presenters will describe the results of these efforts and how others can assist.
