“Avoid”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

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.

“POPS - a bait and switch”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

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 the 70s songs". When a volunteer called trying to solicit $$ we gave him an ear full. There was silence on the line and then he sheepishly said "yea we have heard that a lot". When the music selection changes we will return.

“Delightful evenings await you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We love the Cincinnati Pops. Always a quality, fun show. John Morris Russel clearly loves conducting and the musicians are amazingly talented

“"Bond and Beyond" show is a must see; one chance left!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

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!

“It was different for a change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

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 attend another show.
