MYCincinnati, a free youth orchestra program in Price Hill, begins as
Eddy Kwon, assistant program director, leads the Ambassador Ensemble, a
string sextet of young musicians, in their practice.
Andrea Sisson created four wearable musical instruments as her 2010 senior capstone for DAAP's fashion design program, and each was worn and exhibited at a recent "44" event at the Contemporary Arts Center. Sisson's goal is to physically connect the musician to his or her instrument in a way that allows for a more organic creative process.
Like a bird, just follow the breadcrumbs. No No Knots' trail leads to four sharp, classically trained, College-Conservatory of Music junkies plus Molly Sullivan, one vivid vocalist. Call it Indie Rock or noisy Post Punk, but from Disco to carnival-style Electronic sounds, these tunes catapult into dirty Rock.
The Happy Maladies drip with talent and training, all five have done time at UC's College-Conservatory of Music. And they all shack up together except guitarist/vocalist Ben Thomas, who lives down the street by his lonesome. Five cats roam the band house, and even the cats contribute on "Animal Welcome," one of 11 songs on the band's debut full-length album, 'Sun Shines the Little Children.'
