“Oldest Musical Festival in the Nation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The Cincinnati German heritage brought with it an extreme love and appreciation of great music. This temple to the Muse Calliope is gorgeous and supposedly has the most accurate accoustics of any music hall its size in the nation. If something is playing--GO! Rush tickets day-of event are avaialble and you can see a great program for 5 bucks if you don't care about sitting in the rafters but with Music Halls' accoustics, who cares!

“Majestic and impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I waited all summer for the Music Hall to open its gates and it was worthwhile.
It stands in line with the best music halls in the world: very big, (around 3500 sits) dignified .with
a flare of royalty and grandeur. It played a big part of my enjoyment of "Alice in wonderland"

So if you happen to be in Cincinnati don’t hesitate Go and have

Old, preserved, with great sound! Saw Dave Brubeck there and believe the venue added to a delightful evening.

“Beautiful historic location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Straight from the golden age of music. This building and hall is amazing. Picture a classic cathedral and perform music in it. That's what happens here!
