Mission: To seek and share inspiration


Multicultural Awareness Council (MAC)


The Multicultural Awareness Council (MAC) is a group of diverse, community volunteers whose mission is to foster and increase awareness of the 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 and artistic development.

This season, MAC is fundraising to increase the endowment of the Norman E. Johns Chair of the Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra (CSYO) established in 1995. This award is given annually to support students from populations that are historically underrepresented in classical music in their pursuit of music and covers the cost of tuition in 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 40 years with us.


Join MAC!

Join us as we spread the word about the CSO and Pops in our communities, and enjoy great music, friends and fun.




Thank you to our MAC Chair Quiera Levy-Smith!
