20th Century Theater, Oakley

7 pm Cocktail Hour

8 pm Concert



Experience a fun and irreverent evening of classical and pop music fused in a unique blend of vocals and strings by the New York-based quartet Well-Strung in their Cincinnati debut at the 20th Century Theater! With hits from Madonna to Beethoven, you’ll quickly learn why The New York Daily News called them “the hottest thing with a bow since Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games.” This concert includes a special appearance by Männerchor, the small ensemble of the Cincinnati Men's Chorus.

Sponsors, Members and VIP ticket-buyers receive preferred seating plus exclusive post-concert reception at a private residence with Well-Strung.
