The Cincinnati Children’s Choir received first place in The American Prize in Choral Performance – youth and high school chorus division.
“Without question, the finest ensembles and conductors in the United States have been recognized with the award. It is a great compliment to be considered among such artistry,” said artistic director Robyn Lana.
The American Prize was founded in 2009 and is awarded annually. It is based on a series of nonprofit national competitions in the performing arts at the professional, college/university, church, community and secondary school levels.
“The American Prize celebrates American excellence in the arts and it is wonderful to see CCC recognized for work that aligns with our mission of offering all children the opportunity to experience musical excellence in a creative environment,” said executive director Lauren Hess.
CCC is ensemble-in-residence at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
