Choral Student Fund


May Festival Music Director Laureate James Conlon and Director of Choruses Robert Porco have dedicated a significant portion of their careers to teaching and nourishing the talents of young musicians.  We are pleased to name this fund in honor of their efforts and vision.

The May Festival Choral Student Fund has been established to provide local high school and college students who are enrolled in their school choirs the opportunity to experience the thrill of May Festival performances.

Contributions to the fund come from many sources, including gifts in honor or in memory of individuals.  These donations are used to purchase and distribute tickets to the next generation of May Festival performers and audience members.

Each $12 contribution will provide a ticket for a young musician to attend a May Festival performance.

To make a contribution to this fund, please make a check payable to Cincinnati Musical Festival Association and mail to:
