The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra unites compositional elegance and mainstream melodies during a trio of Pops Series performances. In February, the renowned ensemble rummages through Disney’s catalog of theatrical anthems, wrapping guests in warm quilts of nostalgia with renditions of songs from The Little Mermaid and The Lion King, while big-screen excerpts regale restless eyes. Seasoned tunesmith Ellis Hall joins the symphony in March for a one-night celebration of American icon Ray Charles, escorting concertgoers through the timeless refrains of such ditties as “Hit the Road Jack” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You”. Springtime marks the arrival of Grammy- and Tony-winning Broadway superstar Bernadette Peters, who helps CSO close out the season with vocal conquests that caress ears like an overly affectionate aviator cap.
The orchestra’s strings, brasses, and woodwinds intertwine to form a densely woven welcome mat that invites visitors into their Music Hall home. The acoustically attuned venue features plush seating for 3,417, allowing ample room for fans to clap along and drown out the ghostly wails of maestro batons past that dart up and down the aisles of the gallery seats.
Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra
Founded in 1895, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra—under the direction of Louis Langrée—has matured into one of the nation's melodic heavyweights. Not only was the ensemble the first American orchestra to tour the world, backed by the US Department of State, it also hit the road stateside, playing Carnegie Hall 47 times since 1917. With such an enormous history, it's no surprise that some of classical music's biggest names are associated with the institution. It has housed famous conductors such as Leopold Stokowski and Max Rudolf, and has premiered the works of Debussy, Mahler, Ravel, and Bartók. It's not only responsible for introducing Aaron Copland's A Lincoln Portrait to audiences, it also commissioned his Fanfare for the Common Man into existence. Attracting only the finest players from Ohio and around the world to its stable of musicians, the orchestra continues its second century as an ambassador of symphonic culture.
