The 2009–2010 season marks Gerald Doan’s twenty-eighth anniversary season as the CCO’s conductor and music director. Under Dr. Doan’s leadership, the CCO has undergone tremendous growth in both membership and musicality, tackling works that were once thought to be “too difficult” for a community orchestra.
He has led the CCO in well over one hundred performances at multiple venues and with dozens of Cincinnati’s best professional soloists. He helped the CCO celebrate it’s 50th anniversary in May of 2004 with a gala performance at CCM’s Corbett Auditorium. In his time as Music Director Dr. Doan has introduced nearly 500 new compositions and almost 100 new soloists to the CCO’s members and audiences.
