MAC - Open Door Concerts


Lancaster Graphics & Photography.
This season, MAC is fundraising to endow the Norman E. Johns Chair Award of the Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra (CSYO). The award, established in 1995, is given annually to support students from populations that are historically underrepresented in classical music and covers the cost of tuition for the CSYO. Norman Johns has played cello with the CSO for 40 years and the goal is to raise $40,000 in honor of his service with us.  



The Multicultural Awareness Council (MAC) is a group of diverse community volunteers whose mission is to foster and increase awareness of CSO programs in the greater Cincinnati area through cultural and diverse music programs, educational and community partnerships, scholarships for talented minority student musicians and building diverse audiences.

The CSO values and is committed to increasing diversity and inclusion in its orchestra and audience, its staff and board directors, its business partners and vendors, and to fostering diversity and inclusion in the community it serves.

MAC Open Door Concerts celebrate the cultural diversity, history and heritage of the season’s outstanding artists and composers. Identifying MAC Open Door Concerts is easy. Just look for "MAC Concert" icon on each concert page, or the MAC Open Door icon next to selected concerts in printed brochures and materials.
