last weekend, the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra offered a tribute to Steven Foster, featuring Rose Ann Cash, The Comet Bluegrass All stars, Over the Rhine, and several other entertainers. For a kentucky boy like me, it was pure heaven. As usual, the Pops Orchestra (same as the Symphony Orchestra) played to utter perfection. Standing ovations, Encores, great music done by quality...

We are a frequent patron of the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra and they provide great performances to their audiences. However, we attended their "Red, White and Boom" concert on 4th of July at Riverbend and was disappointed with the lack of patriotic music played. While the guests violinists and vocalist were good,, we would have enjoyed more patriotic music and less... More

Holding forth in the gorgeous old Music Hall, John Russel Morris has maintained the high standards of quality and showmanship people in Cincinnati expect. I have never been disappointed in a show.

We've not experienced the Cincinnati Pops before, but you can bet we'll be in their audience in the future. Conductor John Morris Russell is excellent. You can see he's having fun as he directs this skilled group of musicians. A full compliment of patriotic music with Adrienne Dandrich adding with vocal punch. It is hard to image that Pops Goes...

Both the CSO and the Pops are high quality orchestras with skilled musicians playing in a beautiful and classic setting. I've attended regularly for over 20 years and find it for the most part quite enjoyable. However, the new Pops conductor, John Russell is a showman and clown more concerned with his own cuteness and "brand" ( he is now... More

I gave the CSO 5/5, but I avoid this summer group like a plague. If you can attend one of their free shows, then go for it. The music choices and show choices turn me off completely.

Quite possibly the best pops show I've ever attended!! Tickets? Start at around $15 and the top balcony has incredible sound. There is a repeat performance next Sunday, 11/11/12. All the popular Bond movie songs, video screen showing old film pics, posters, live musicians and soloist, you are surrounded by the experience, including the actual Aston Martin car on stage!

We attended the show "Superheros!". I had cheap tickets (25 dollars), but the view was still ok. The conductor was funny and kept us entertained throughout the show. They payed a variety of super hero music. They serve drinks before and during the show. The staff was friendly and showed you exactly where you were sitting. I would like to... More
