Beethoven Revolution


The last installment of this season’s Beethoven Revolution takes place May 11–13, when Louis Langrée leads the CSO in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, in which soaring French horns set the scene for one of the great finales in all music.

Letter from the President | May 2018


In my first letter as CSO President last fall, I expressed how thrilled I was to be back in Ohio and to be part of the Cincinnati community. I was new in town, the Orchestra was fresh off a  successful three-week European tour, and all eyes were on the opening of Music Hall following an extensive renovation project. To say this organization was running on all cylinders would be an understatement, and I am pleased to report the season has gone exceptionally well, though I am not really sure we ever took our foot off the gas pedal.

I often write about connections to music, but this month I write about a connection to place—Music Hall to be exact.
