A New Vision for the american voice

The Cincinnati Fusion Ensemble is a professional performing ensemble with a threefold mission: to offer world-class performances, to foster young musicians through high-level music education, and to engage the community. CFE was established in 2013 and is comprised of a roster of over 30 nationally and internationally renowned singers based in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. The professional Ensemble, in various groupings, performs in the genres of choral music, art song, vocal chamber music, musical theater, jazz, folk music, oratorio, and chamber opera. Having produced a wide variety of concerts, the Ensemble continues to develop a unique mentorship program to offer applied lessons to highly talented students—regardless of their socio-economic status. These lessons are subsidized through grants and partnerships in the form of need and talent based scholarships. Students experience high-level, excellent instruction with teachers of the caliber found in the finest collegiate music schools. Integral to the advancement of CFE's mission, the Cincinnati Fusion Ensemble was approved in 2014 for state and federal non-profit status, and is a registered 501(c)(3) organization.

The Cincinnati Fusion Ensemble also sponsors an annual Choral and Voice Institute, an annual Voice scholarship competition, and various community enhancement projects including Winton Woods High School.
