History of College of Music of Cincinnati

The College of Music of Cincinnati was founded in 1878 by George Ward Nichols, a Cincinnatian. Theodore Thomas, a renowned musician and conductor, became the College's music director, with much of his, and the institution's, funding provided by Reuben Springer, another wealthy Cincinnatian. The College of Music was located in Dexter Hall, a part of Cincinnati's Music Hall. Later, it moved to a permanent location known as the Odeon, and eventually it consisted of multiple buildings in Over-the-Rhine, connected to Music Hall. Due to financial hardship and internal management conflicts, in 1955, the College of Music of Cincinnati merged with the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music to form the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM). CCM became the University of Cincinnati's fourteenth college in 1962
