Mission: To Seek and Share Inspiration


A Letter from the President | December 2018


Dear Friends,

Throughout this holiday season and the coming new year, please know the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Cincinnati Pops remain firmly committed to our mission: To seek and share inspiration. Next month we announce the 125th anniversary season with that mission in mind. Yes, there will be great musical offerings, but we will also point the way to bold new initiatives both on and off the stage that will build on the CSO’s legacy and chart a new path.

The celebratory season will not only reflect the Orchestra’s artistry, but will also demonstrate a commitment to advancing the art form and fulfilling the CSO’s vision: to more fully engage broader audiences and our wider community.

Music is for everyone, and the CSO is committed not only to inclusiveness, but to better reflecting the world in which we live through everything the Orchestra does.

Many of you are part of the CSO’s work to create moments of musical connection with dynamic performances and outreach through your support of the Orchestra Fund. If you have not yet participated, we invite you to become a donor. All of this organization’s important work is possible because of a generous and supportive community.

Enjoy the performance, and best wishes for a wonderful holiday season!
