The CSO is pleased to announce One City, One Symphony 2013
Music brings people together. This was never more true than when the CSO embarked on the inaugural One City, One Symphony program this past year, capturing the imagination of thousands from throughout the region through listening parties, concerts, live video feeds, digital downloads, and radio and television broadcasts. People used words like “soaring,” “uplifting,” “joyful,” “intense” and “fascinating” to describe their One City, One Symphony experience.
The CSO is proud to again present One City, One Symphony in the fall of 2013, this time exploring love, fate and redemption in the dramatically vivid Symphony No. 4 by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, a timeless, lushly romantic musical tapestry riddled with raw emotion, and a beautiful but nearly forgotten work based on the Psalms of David by Tchaikovsky’s musical idol, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. We’ll discover or rediscover these masterpieces together as a community, building upon our understanding of the music through a remarkable shared experience. Nov 14 & 16 CONCERT & TICKET INFO

Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony is all over Cincinnati as we enter into "One City, One Symphony" 2013! In this video, Pops Conductor John Morris Russell conducts the MYCincinnati Orchestra (the "El Sistema" based music education program) in their rendition of Tchaik 4. MYCincinnati will be performing in the Music Hall lobby as pre-concert entertainment on Thursday, November 14 prior to the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra's performance of Tchaik 4 and Mozart's "Davide Penitente."
In a community-wide initiative described by sold-out audiences as "fascinating," "moving" and "soaring," Music Director Louis Langrée and your CSO are proud to reprise One City, One Symphony. We'll again bring our community together in a remarkable shared experience to explore the themes of fate and redemption in Tchaikovsky's lushly romantic Symphony No. 4 and in a beautiful but nearly forgotten work by Mozart, Davide penitente, based on the Psalms of David.
The Orchestra is proud to partner with CET to bring Saturday’s “One City, One Symphony” performance to people who may not otherwise be able to experience it.

As a gift to the community, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is pleased to release the live recording from the November 15, 17-18 concerts, available as a free download via the links below. The downloads, which include all four movements of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony as well as Schoenberg’s A Survivor from Warsaw, feature Music Director Designate Louis Langrée conducting the Orchestra, the mighty May Festival Chorus and soloists Twyla Robinson, Kelley O’Connor, Dimitri Pittas, Morris Robinson and Brad Jungwirth.
These downloads have been made possible by the CSO’s partnership with 90.9 WGUC, one of dozens of community partners for “One City, One Symphony.” The recordings were produced by Elaine Martone and and engineered by Chelsea VandeDrink, WGUC Mastering and Production Engineer.
These files are usable in any device of your choosing capable of playing MP3 files.
Video co-produced by CET and the CSO
With One City, One Symphony, the CSO is bringing the community together through music. In the 2012-13 season we hosted a dozen listening parties in neighborhoods throughout the region and partnered with a diverse array of community organizations. We welcomed 8,279 people to our November 15, 17 and 18 concerts at Music Hall, and many, many more through the November 17 live video feed to 14 different locations.
Though the spectacular concerts featuring Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and its iconic “Ode to Joy” finale, paired with Schoenberg’s A Survivor from Warsaw, with the May Festival Chorus and Music Director Designate Louis Langrée have passed, the community connectedness and dialogue have only just begun.
In addition to the free download now available (see above), the CSO partnered with CET for a local broadcast of the concert. The concert aired seven times on CET Arts during the month of May. Be sure to check back here often for the latest updates, and in the meantime, you may download some of our digital resources, post a question, review or photo to our forum, or even make your own “Ode to Joy” video and help continue the discussion in your neighborhood.
