Cincinnati Pops

John Kiesewetter

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.

The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra has a busy summer ahead with concerts at the Taft Theatre, Miami Whitewater Forest and Riverbend, and guests like Seth McFarland and Aoife O’Donovan.

Fans of TV’s Nashville will know Will Chase from his role as superstar Luke Wheeler. This Lexington, Kentucky native (and UK fan) is coming to Music Hall to join the Cincinnati Pops in their concert presentation of The Music Man on May 1-3. He joins Lee Hay by phone to talk about singing the role of Professor Harold Hill in this American musical classic, plus his role on one of primetime TV’s biggest hits.

  This weekend, the Cincinnati Pops is joins forces with Cirque Mechanics to create amazing performances that combine popular classics with spectacular acrobatics. Here to give us an idea of what’'s in store for Music Hall audiences, and what goes into melding the music and the mechanics into each performance, are Sam Strater, Cincinnati Pops director of artistic administration; and Chris Lashua, founder and artistic director of Cirque Mechanics.

Performances are March 27, 28 and 29, for more details and ticket information click here.

The next concert from the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra is called American Originals and will feature a guest line-up including Rosanne Cash, Over the Rhine, Don Flemons and more, including Cincinnati’s own Comet Bluegrass All-Stars. Ed Cunningham from the All-Stars sits down with Lee Hay to talk about this celebration of Americana music happening January 23-25 at Music Hall.

The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra will kick off 2015 with their traditional concert and gala on December 31 with special guest vocalist Storm Large. Conductor John Morris Russell previews all the festivities with Frank Johnson.

The Cincinnati Pops have just released their newest CD, Carnival of the Animals, the 93rd album in the orchestra’s illustrious history, and we hear a little bit of the music.
