Community + Engagement Program Support


“I was 4, and it was a school time performance for my older brother. Mom couldn’t get a sitter, so I went…I remember we had first balcony, dead center, I stood up and peered through the railing the entire time, completely enraptured by the whole experience. I have now been teaching music for almost 18 years, and LOVE the workshops that you put on for teachers.” Sarah Smiley – Young People's Concerts participant

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Cincinnati Pops establishes life-long relationships with the community, promoting active participation in music at every age. Thousands of individuals are impacted by concerts, educational programs, appearances in the community, open rehearsals and other events each season.

Support the work of the Orchestra’s major programs and initiatives as we seek to engage audiences and community throughout the Greater Cincinnati region and beyond.
