Jesús López CobosCSO Music Director Emeritus Jesús López-Cobos passed away on Friday, March 2, 2018 in Berlin at age 78. His extraordinary tenure as Music Director here in Cincinnati from 1986 to 2001 had a lasting impact and he forged so many wonderful friendships. We grieve with his family and honor and celebrate his tremendous legacy.

There will be a moment of silence before each of this weekend’s concerts and we will dedicate the performances on March 23 and 24 in Jesús López-Cobos’ memory.

Please keep his family, many friends and former colleagues in your thoughts and prayers in this time of loss.
