Mission: To Seek and Share Inspiration




Musical worlds merge in the third year of this groundbreaking artistic collaboration

Spotlight on Rachel Charbel

For this Spotlight we feature CSO Violinist (Ida Ringling North Chair) Rachel Charbel. In coming months we’ll continue to spotlight other musicians, patrons or leaders within the CSO and Pops community.

CODA | March 2016

Two years ago I first posed the question in Fanfare Cincinnati, “What does it mean to be a place of experimentation?” At that time, the Orchestra was about to embark on our first MusicNOW Festival collaboration with Artistic Director Bryce Dessner. This bold experiment introduced the CSO to many new faces, and MusicNOW is returning to the CSO’s Boundless series for the third consecutive year this very month.
