The Corbett Foundation, which distributed some $70 million to arts and education causes over 60 years, has been shut down with immediate effect.

Past beneficiaries include the Corbett Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music, Corbett Tower in Music Hall, Northern Kentucky University’s Patricia A. Corbett Theater and J. Ralph Corbett Pavilion at Riverbend.

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the musical theater program at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music have received substantial grants in the past six years.

The Corbetts funded more than 40 opera productions in and around Cincinnati. More here.

    I hate to tell you this, but this ain’t no major music foundation…outside of Ohio, no one ever heard of it…thought it doesn’t make the closing any easier for those who were grantees…
