We loved our experience at the Music Now Festival with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, collaborating with The National. Both musical groups were superb and the Music Hall was stunning. We will continue to watch the schedule for other opportunities to visit!

An absolute "World Class" venue, renowned for unmatched acoustics, it is a perfect showcase for some of the most talented musicians in the world. The CSO was instrumental in speeding acceptance of the Compact Disc (CD) as an acceptable medium for presenting true High Fidelity music!

Went there for Handel's Messiah performance. Vocalists were excellent, and the orchestra played well. $12 seats were perfect. Was able to see most everything on stage and the acoustics filled the hall.

Beautiful building, great symphony and conductor. We had the pleasure of going early and having a pre symphony interview with Andre Previn. Such a wonderful time. Wonderful sparkling wine and chocolates at the concessions. The orchestra , the music the conductor.....simply magical. Only negative .....no cabs afterwards.... call Uber before you leave. And head over to the Netherland Plaza for... More

We attended Holiday Pops and we can't wait for next year to see it again! The show was so much more than I expected...in addition to the phenomenal orchestra, there was singing, dancing, and even some funny parts! Music Hall is an attraction in itself; a beautiful, historic building. We were in the Gallery seats (the nosebleeds :)) and we... More

Thanksgiving weekend we attended the Cincinnati Symphony performance of a Tchaikovsky concerto and symphony. I have never been at a performance (and I've been to many) of such quality! The soloist was unbelievably wonderful. He received several standing ovations and did several encores. The symphony itself performed amazingly. We also attended a performance there last year which was great as... More

The symphony is one of the best things about Cincinnati; it usually performs in the lovely Music Hall and has an international reputation for wonderful performances. There are relatively inexpensive tickets available in the "nos bleed" section so it is affordable, at least once in awhile. There is parking across the street under Washington Park and also street level parking.... More

Great performance. Beethoven's 5th. Great new conductor. Wish the auditorium was better, because the sound was not so great.
