For over two centuries, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has regaled eager ears of all ages with professional symphonic sounds and high quality musical performances. Grammy Award-winning conductor Paavo Järvi bids adieu to his much beloved orchestra in this, his final season, which boasts an impressive performance listing of classical favorites by Handel, Tchaikovsky, and more. Notable talents featured this season include Grammy-winning violinist Hilary Hahn plucking the strings of her small, wooden, hourglass-shaped guitar to Mozart, and André Watts skillfully tickling, and then impassionedly smashing, his Beethoven-tuned ivories. For casual listeners looking to venture deeper into the wilds of frontier symphony orchestra territory, the CSO provides an interactive collection quiz that helps visitors choose the musical program best suited to their ear canal proclivities. Performances are held in acoustically gifted Music Hall, with full-view seating in Gallery D.

Because classical music is a dish best served alongside edible dishes, Thursday evening performances include a free dinner buffet starting at 6:15 p.m. designed to sate talkative tongues and prevent inappropriately timed Stravinsky sing-alongs.

Reviews

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has received a great deal of press, including a feature on past performances in the Cincinnati Enquirer:

  • As if it had been [Music Director Paavo Järvi's] goal throughout, he poured all of his ardor into the final melody, then charged lickety-split to the end. Bear hugs, bravos and a standing ovation followed… – Mary Ellyn Hutton, Enquirer
