I see opera performances here a couple times a year and I've seen the symphony here a few times as well. It is, to me, the most beautiful building in Cincinnati by far, and one of the most beautiful I've seen anywhere. Not only outside, but also inside. Acoustics are great so it's easy to hear everywhere and there really... More

A beautiful, historic, ornate building located in downtown Cincinnati. I started going to enjoy the Cincinnati Pops and have enjoyed every show. Ushers recommended that I select the balcony for the great acoustics, though I understand the sounds are fabulous throughout the hall. Parking is easy and inexpensive. I suggest getting there early in good weather to enjoy Washington Park... More

This Hall is amazing. I had the pleasure of both attending and singing in concerts that were part of the MayFestival. The staff is helpful and pleasant. I'd recommend sitting in the balcony - the sound was great there.

I had to visit this historic building so we got tickets to the symphony. It was a wonderful experience and I will go back again on our next visit. Guest pianist was very talented! Looked for ghosts but didn't spot any in this famous haunted historic building!!

What a beautiful building. My wife and I love to go watch the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra at Music Hall. AMAZING acoustics! Not a bad seat anywhere. My wife loves the chandelier. They have also spent a lot of time and money fixing up the surrounding area. Parking is easy with plenty of options including one garage with a direct walkway... More

We were fortunate enough to attend a concert at Cincinnati Music Hall to see the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra as well as The National perform both alone and together. Music Hall is as beautiful as it is historic and the city has done a tremendous job building up the area around it. Of course, the Orchestra is fabulous, too, so an... More

We came early to the MusicNOW festival on a Sunday night. The architecture and the overall feel of the establishment is retro and wonderful. The old time stage with the lighting is fantastic. The seats are all great. We were first row again and WOW. The closing act rocked Americana. Across the street from the venue is a wonderful park... More

If asked to choose the gem of Cincinnati, I would most certainly select Music Hall in Over-the-Rhine. Even before entering this magnificent building, you are able to appreciate the beauty of its facade, with its looming red brick towers and tasteful glass windows. Immediately upon entering, though, the grandeur is astounding. The age of the hall becomes apparent with its... More

Disappointed in this very inappropriate and, and in my opinion, a very poor program that was not up to the usual standards for this annual concert. Would not attend this concert again.

My wife, friends and I attended the Cincinnati Pops holiday concert. Music Hall is beautiful and the music was wonderful. All area residents should go at least once in their lifetimes.
