Music Hall


We are thrilled to welcome you to Music Hall, a National Historic Landmark and the crown jewel of Over-the-Rhine. After an extensive renovation in 2017, Music Hall is—perhaps now more than ever in the building’s 149-year history—a welcoming beacon for the community and a pantheon of the arts for generations to come.

P&G Founders Room: Located front and center in the Grand Foyer, stop here for wine and conversation before the performance. Local artworks are featured on a rotating display throughout the season.

Restrooms: All restrooms include accessible stalls and are found on all levels.

Concessions: Enjoy local offerings and premium coffee, plus specialty cocktails in conjunction with themed performances such as Friday Orange. Pre-order your drink and have it ready for you at intermission. Drinks are also allowed into the auditorium for most performances.

Safety and Accessibility: Look for elevators that reach all floors, a street-level handicapped entrance at the Box Office, increased wheelchair and companion seating options, plus a state-of-the-art assisted listening device system. If you or your guests require other accessible needs, please contact the Box Office.  

For families: We are making it easier to introduce younger people to the CSO, with family restrooms and diaper changing stations, plus a childcare rebate—details at cincinnatisymphony.org/childcare. (Please note that regular CSO concerts are limited to ages 6+, but Lollipops Family Concerts, Pops Family Series and Young People’s Concerts are appropriate for young children.)

Want to know more? Tours are provided by the Society for the Preservation of Music Hall. Check out their website for more information.
