What's Interesting

  • This weekend's concerts feature the music of two composers who changed the landscape of American orchestral music—William Grant Still and Florence Price.
  • In his debut performance with the CSO, pianist Louis Schwizgebel will bring his expertise and love of Price's Piano Concerto in One Movement. 
  • Duke Ellington performed and recorded with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. His Harlem takes us on a stroll through the neighborhood on a Sunday morning.
