Friday Orange. A stimulating live music experience.


We perform amazing music every week. 

You have only this one moment.


Make the most of your Friday Orange experience:

• Fridays of arts and culture at its pinnacle: outstanding music by a world-class orchestra.

• No need to be intimidated—you’re welcome here and we’ll guide you through it.

• Mingle before and after the show. Catch live entertainment and other guest-curated experiences that may never have been paired with live orchestra before.

• Wear a hint of orange! Style inspiration here: men/women. Consider it a wink to say “I’m in.” We’ll compliment a few orange-wearers each concert with a free drink ticket. 

Tickets from $12. Or, $10 by phone for first-timerscall 513.381.3300. Check out photos from past events here.
