The amazement that is LumenoCity returns to Washington Park next weekend. The event was so successful last summer, this year it's been expanded to three performances, will include an all-new visual and music program by the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestras, and provide multiple opportunities for audiences to watch, listen and experience. Joining us to explore what goes into the making of LumenoCity is Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra Vice President of Communications Christopher Pinelo, along with Steve McGowan and Dan Reynolds. Their creative design and production company, Brave Berlin, creates the digital animations, choreographed to the music of the CSO, that are projected onto the front of Music Hall.
Cincinnati Public Radio and CET are partnering with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra to provide live broadcasts of next month's Lumenocity 2014 at Washington Park. It's scheduled for August 1, 2 and 3 and the free tickets for the music and light show with Music Hall as a backdrop went quickly.
The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, in conjunction with Macy’s, will present a premiere family concert on December 14 based on the famous New York Times editorial Yes Virginia. Frank Johnson speaks with Wesley Whatley, the composer, and Bill Schermerhorn from Macy’s about the creation of this piece and why it’s debuting in Cincinnati.
