The Gene Bryant Memorial Concert
Each year as a part of Sensoria, the CPCC music department honors the memory of Gene Bryant, founder and longtime chair of the music department. The nature of the Arts & Communication division is a direct result of his vision, spirit and tireless energy as his impact still resonates throughout the music department, college and community.
The Bechtler Museum and CPCC Music and Art departments have collaborated on a music and art series that consists of five concerts of chamber that are paired with a presentation of slides of parallel artwork from the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art.

CPCC Opera Presents: Don Giovanni
The legend of the notorious womanizer, Don Juan, and his encounter with the Stone Guest and his mortality has inspired poets and playwrights for centuries. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo da Ponte (himself a womanizer) premiered their inspiration of the Don Juan legend on October 29, 1787 in Prague. The opera, Don Giovanni, was an overwhelming success and has become one of the most popular of Mozart’s operas. CPCC Opera Theatre is thrilled to be presenting Don Giovanni this spring to kick-off the CPCC 2014 Sensoria Celebration of the Arts. It will be sung in English with supertitles.
