These are true professionals; from Pops, to Opera, from ballet to the classics, they play it all and do not miss a beat. Come this year and welcome our New Maestro.

I heard Gil Shaham, world renowned violinist and the wonderful conducting of Yan Pascal Tortelier playing Brahms Symphony Number 2 in D Major. This was another great program put on by our great Orchestra. This year's concerts are outstanding, and the planning for 2014 looks even better than ever. So many opportunities, and at reasonable prices. We love our orchestra!

One of the best in the country. Always a very entertaining event. They usually have nationally known guests perform. A great place to visit the Symphony is Music Hall. GREAT accoustics

Cincinnati certainly has lots of musical talent. The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has a marvelous group of musicians who shine with their performances. If you're longing for culture you'll find it in Cincinnati.

This group has never failed to impress me. I am a very demanding person when it comes to the performing arts. That being said, I have thoroughly enjoyed their performances over the years. I continue to recommend this group.

The Classical Symphony as well as the Pops Series are both top shelf. Always a rewarding evening. The talent produced by the University of Cincinnati's College Conservatory of Music produces a constant flow of new talent when needed.

This is a review of the POPs section of the CSO - We have dropped our season tickets as for the last two years we have continually experienced the old "bait and switch" tactic. For example we went to her Reba but she sang Elvis! Took friends to a 70's concert and when it was over they asked "where were... More

We were blessed enough to have tickets to the Sold Out Amy Grant Concert! This was our first time attending the Symphony, and I was absolutely amazed! Every song was beautiful! Breath of Heaven sung with the orchestra was outstanding and Amy's song Jesus is not an Heirloom, brought me to tears! I hope they bring her back every year... More

Great venue. Saw the Pops with Amy Grant for a Christmas themed concert. The new parking garage across the street under Washington Park is a nice add and makes getting in and out much easier.

We attended Beethoven's 9th Symphony on Sat. (11/17) with our out-of-town friends. The May Festival Chorus (of over 100 singers) sang during the last movement - as well as 4 soloists. It was a night to remember. We are so fortunate to has this talented group of top-notch musicians and a beautiful venue right in our own back yard. We... More
