Mission: To Seek and Share Inspiration


Letter from the President | January 2019


Dear Friends,

Happy New Year!

January not only features a diverse array of concerts, but importantly marks the announcement of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s 125th Anniversary Season. We are excited about a season that will reflect the Orchestra’s legacy, and demonstrate a commitment to advancing the art form and fulfilling the CSO’s mission to seek and share inspiration.

We are Cincinnati’s orchestra. I’ve said it before but it bears repeating: 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.

Our 125th Anniversary Season Announcement is coming Thursday, January 24, at 4 pm, and the announcement will be carried live on Facebook. You are cordially invited to witness the unveiling on your computer, tablet or smart phone. The details will also be shared immediately following the announcement on the CSO website and through other communication channels.

Our bold initiatives and concert experiences of this anniversary season are possible because of our supportive community. We look forward to sharing the journey and next chapter in the life of the CSO with all of Cincinnati.

Enjoy the performance!
