A treasure trove of music awaits you on your phone, tablet or computer.

It’s been a year since we completely overhauled the Orchestra’s website and some new features have come more squarely into focus in recent months. Of course it’s a great destination to find out about upcoming concerts, read articles, explore our community engagement and learning initiatives, renew subscriptions, buy tickets and make donations, but did you know it’s also where you can find free music downloads and streaming?

That’s right! Next time you’re wanting to hear some great orchestral music, visit us at cincinnatisymphony.org and click on the “Watch & Listen” menu. Our new “American Soundscapes” series, produced in partnership with CET and made possible by the George L and Anne P. Heldman Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, features Cincinnati Pops performance videos with conductor John Morris Russell captured live last season at Music Hall. These videos are garnering tens of thousands of views so far from people around the world and there are more to come!

You’ll also find two volumes of the “Music of LUMENOCITY” available to audio stream instantly and download to your music library. This offering includes masterpieces by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Ravel, Copland, Borodin, John Adams, Elgar and Richard Strauss that you’ve heard at LUMENOCITY, with additional bonus tracks by the likes of Debussy and Mendelssohn. These beautiful recordings feature Louis Langrée conducting the CSO and were captured at live performances inside Music Hall. They are available exclusively on our website and more tracks are being released this summer!

But there’s more! From another signature CSO initiative, you’ll find live recordings from ONE CITY, ONE SYMPHONY, also featuring Louis and the CSO, and also available for instant audio streaming and downloading exclusively on our website. This collection of full works recorded live includes Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the May Festival Chorus and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4.

You’ll also find additional concert video content, short web documentaries and Spotify portals to the Orchestra’s recent commercial releases on the Fanfare Cincinnati label, including the Pops’ American Originals, the CSO’s Hallowed Ground and the May Festival’s The Ordering of Moses.

Enjoy this wonderful music and share it with your friends and family around the world!
