CODA | January 2016
Generations of extraordinary talent have guest performed with this Orchestra, some of them legendary composers, and these fruitful collaborations have amplified Cincinnati’s indelible mark on the world’s musical landscape. Among the luminaries are Sergei Rachmaninoff, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, John Adams, Béla Bartók, John Williams, Richard Strauss, Duke Ellington, John Philip Sousa, and Gunther Schuller, to name a few.
Letter from the President
Has it ever happened to you? While traveling out of town, you’ve heard the CSO or Pops on the radio, seen our CDs in a store, or stumbled upon a review of your hometown orchestra in a newspaper or magazine. With a great touring legacy, over 10 million recordings sold around the globe, and a regular presence on the broadcast airwaves, we have a particular appreciation and understanding that arts put Cincinnati on the map.
