Take a look back at our past seasons to see what music we have made together.
A heartfelt thanks is due to all of the Donors to our Music for All Seasons Silent Auction
This past December 3, Music for All Seasons held a Silent Auction. Thousands of dollars worth of gifts, goods and services were placed on the Silent Auction and almost 100% of them were bid upon. The total income generated by the auction, added to the tickets sold to our concerts during this past year, went for scholarships at CCM, the College-Conservatory of Music of the University of Cincinnati. We thank all of you, friends, donors, and audience members for your generosity and support.
