Renovating Music Hall


It has been over 40 years since the visionary philanthropists Patricia and Ralph Corbett led the last extensive renovation of Music Hall. For perspective, in the decades to follow, dozens of new concert halls have either been built or renovated in other major markets across the country. Our Music Hall also deserves and requires regular care and attention to remain a world-class performing arts facility for the community.

Glowing, glowing, gone

The new and final LUMENOCITY


You've been here: sitting among neighbors and friends under the stars, perhaps with a glass of wine, perhaps with little ones barefoot in the cool grass, united for an experience that promises so much wonderment that you can feel a tangible buzz of anticipation.

Spotlight on Riverbend Music Center


The Spotlight article featured in each issue of Fanfare Cincinnati highlights musicians, patrons and other members of the CSO and Pops community. For this issue, we offer a look at a different sort of member of our community—the Orchestra’s summer home at Riverbend Music Center.
