ArtsWave Presents
Music Hall Re(New)ed Community Celebration

Saturday, October 7 | 9:30 A.M.-3:00 P.M.
At Music Hall


Celebrate the reopening of Music Hall.

Join ArtsWave and Music Hall's resident companies (Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, Cincinnati Ballet, and Cincinnati May Festival ) for a behind-the-scenes tour of Cincinati's state-of-the art, newly-renovated crown jewel.

The festivities begin with the official opening of Music Hall at 9:30 a.m. Come and go as you please, and our guides will meet you in Music Hall on your own time. Throughout the building and Washington Park, you’ll experience performances by all five resident performance groups, and unique, hands-on experiences in a day that promises to be unlike any other:

Imagine the entire symphony laid out in portraits

Be a part Cincinnati’s largest Hula Hoop dance party on the lawn of Washington Park

Learn the physics behind the organ

See a birthday cake the size of a room

Witness the convergence of grace and glamour in fashion displays by the Ballet and Opera

Sit down for a one-on-one session with an internationally-acclaimed orchestra player

Performances throughout the day by the gazebo and main stage of Washington Park

Don’t forget to visit the beer garden

Hear the stories behind these 100+ year-old rooms from a local historian

Head next door to Memorial Hall to experience incredible photography from FotoFocus
