What's Interesting

  • Though it was composed at a time when Beethoven was forced to face his increasing deafness, his Second Symphony resonates with energy and frantic joy.
  • Guest violinist Esther Yoo, the first-ever Artist-in-Residence with London's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, joins the CSO to perform Prokofiev’s dark and flashy Second Violin Concerto. Get to know her through her Instagram and Spotify accounts. 
  • The CSO commissioned Halcyon Sun by Composer-in-Residence Jonathan Bailey Holland for the opening of Cincinnati's National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
  • For best seat availability, join us for the matinee, and enjoy a little Sunday self-care.
