The Greater Cincinnati Chinese Music Society or GCCMS was founded by a few local music lovers in 1995. It is an independent, nonprofit organization with the mission to share Chinese culture through music and education. Since its inception, the music society has presented a series of cultural events including the annual Chinese New Year Concert. The first concert presented by GCCMS took place at the Memorial Hall in 1995, drawing 600-700 music and culture lovers from the Greater Cincinnati Area. Since 2003, GCCMS has formed a long-term partnership with CCM’s Philharmonia Orchestra, presenting a world-class concert with music from the East and the West every year. Throughout the years, GCCMS has contributed to the increasing cultural diversity in the region by bringing classical music and renowned musicians from China and by exposing young musicians at CCM and local music lovers to different genres of music.
