What's Interesting

Celebrate LGBTQIA+ Pride with the CSO! Come ready to serve looks and strut your stuff!

Brady Block Parties are FREE and open to the public! They’ll include music and art activations, games and activities for all ages, and food trucks from local vendors.

The party is capped off with an outdoor concert by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.

Thorgy Thor, NYC-based drag performance artist and professional musician, famed worldwide from the hit show RuPaul’s Drag Race, joins the CSO, along with Cincinnati-based ensemble Queen City Cabaret and vocalist Ciara Harper.
