Mission: To Seek and Share Inspiration





To seek and share inspiration


We will engage audiences and community better than any other orchestra in the world


Determined for Greatness: For Cincinnati to have an orchestra of worldclass stature, it has taken tenacity, perseverance and a steadfast commitment to extraordinary artistry.

A Place of Experimentation: From commissioning and premiering daring new works to being the first orchestra featured on a national radio broadcast to LUMENOCITY®, the Orchestra has demonstrated for over a century that it is a place of experimentation.

Cincinnati’s Ambassador: From coast to coast and around the world, people everywhere know Cincinnati as a center of culture and excellence through its Orchestra. 

Cincinnati’s Own: By performing in neighborhoods and collaborating with artistic partners and organizations throughout the region, the Orchestra demonstrates a real commitment to serving our community and elevating Cincinnati’s vibrant cultural scene.
