The fourth Lumenocity light and music show this weekend presents new challenges – instead of capturing the sights and sounds outside Music Hall, radio and TV producers and directors will be broadcasting a live show from inside Taft Theatre.

Kristin Chenoweth is an award-winning singer and actor, known for her work on Broadway, TV, and on concert stages around the world.

The Cincinnati Pops have a busy summer planned, featuring concerts with Kristin Chenoweth, Aretha Franklin and E.T. among others.

From new amenities to improved access, many arts venues around town are getting major makeovers. Starting in June, Music Hall will be closed for the most detailed renovation in its nearly 140-year history. Memorial Hall closed last May and is currently under renovation. Over-the-Rhine is also getting a new theater on the corner of 12th and Elm streets.

Jason Alexander has made his mark in TV (Seinfeld), movies (Pretty Woman), and won a Tony Award for his performance in Jerome Robbin’s Broadway.

This month, the first live recording from the Cincinnati Pops will be released. American Originals was recorded in January 2015 at Music Hall and the program featured Conductor John Morris Russell leading the Pops and a group of talented guest stars through parts of the Great American Songbook and the music of Stephen Foster.

If you don’t have tickets to see “Lumenocity” in person, here’s how you can watch or hear the Washington Park concert.

And you definitely should watch.

Michael Giacchino is the award-winning composer of TV, movie and video game scores, including Cars 2, Lost, Jurassic World, The Incredibles, and the 2009 reboot of the Star Trek films.

July 4th isn’t the same for some of us without Erich Kunzel on PBS’ “A Capitol Fourth.” Kunzel conducted the National Symphony Orchestra July 4th and Memorial Day concerts for nearly 20 years, until his death in 2009 at age 74.

Thanks to CET, Kunzel returns to TV on July 4, with two repeats of “Erich Kunzel: A Cincinnati Legacy,” a  half-hour local special which premiered on July 4, 2010.
