Music and Event Management, Inc. (MEMI) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra that manages Riverbend Music Center, the PNC Pavilion and the Taft Theatre. Incorporated in 2001, MEMI is the result of the unique combination of experienced event management professionals, and the commitment of the CSO to apply this experience and knowledge to corporate, private, municipal and not-for-profit clients.
