I am an opera fan and I saw a few operas here. The acoustics are wonderful. The building obviously has a lot of history. If you plan on attending a show be sure to get there early to find parking spot, and don't leave your valuables in the car.

Love music hall and if you get a chance to take a tour it is very interesting. the area does present some challenges as it is being revitalized and parking is not as convenient as one would hope.

It's a beautiful music hall that needs to be renovated. They have maybe close to a thousand seats crammed in that they could take out and make everyone a lot more comfortable.

I like everything about the historic side of Music Hall, but am eager for the renovations to be started. It's a beautiful and magnificent edifice with fantastic acoustics, but needs more comfortable seating.

Went to a thank you dinner and sat with JMR...then went to a James Galway Concert...Sat in the front row for $12. Can't beat that. What a thrill I met Sir James in Boston many years ago. A WONDERFUL concert hall.

As a Cincinnatian, Music Hall is such an outstanding venue. Additionally, a great treasure is the May Festival, the oldest Choral Festival in the U.S.. If you ever have the opportunity, take in the May Festival, it's unique, and only one word can describe the event: Bravo!!!!!!

Terrific acoustics and a great performance by The Cincinnati Pops! The performance was a tribute to the late great Erich Kunzel.

Honestly one of the loveliest buildings in the city with a world class symphony and choral festival.With Washington Park rehabbed along with much of the neighborhood it is a very inviting space now.
