The symphony is one of the best things about Cincinnati; it usually performs in the lovely Music Hall and has an international reputation for wonderful performances. There are relatively inexpensive tickets available in the "nos bleed" section so it is affordable, at least once in awhile. There is parking across the street under Washington Park and also street level parking.... More

Great performance. Beethoven's 5th. Great new conductor. Wish the auditorium was better, because the sound was not so great.

Really wonderful musicians but I love how it feels like they just walked up the sidewalk next to you or got off the bus with their instruments and set up to play. Surprising the greats you will see.

We are very blessed in Cincinnati to have an excellent orchestra. And, the venue is quite lovely, old but elegant.

One of the best kept-secret in Cincinnati! A top-notch cultural attraction. Very talented group and outstanding performances one after the other. This is one of the reasons I love Cincinnati!

The Pops is world renowned for many reasons. Seeing a performance in person was absolutely incredible. The building is beautiful and has great acoustics!

I can't say enough about the CSO. It's an amazing experience. Our new maestro, Louis Langree, is innovative and exciting......but we have always been blessed with excellent conductors ......perhaps because the musicians of the CSO are amazing and entice these creative leaders to accept the challenge to bring even more beauty from the music.
