The popular light and music show Lumenocity will be back for a fourth and final year. The twist this year is that the show is going indoors.

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.

One of the many highlights at this year’s MusicNOW Festival will be a performance from the acclaimed Kronos Quartet.

The start of the 2015-16 Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra season is fast approaching, which means planning for the ever-popular Opening Night Gala is well-underway.

People who have tickets to Lumenocity shouldn't be worried about rain stopping the show.  Cincinnati Symphony and Pops spokesperson Meghan Berneking says the event will go on, even if it has to wait for a storm to pass.

William C. White is the Assistant Conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra (CSYO). Last weekend he and the CSYO performed a concert at New York's Carnegie Hall. William White is also a composer and arranger - Cincinnati Edition listeners should be familiar with his work, he composed our theme music.

Coming up this fall is the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s fourth One City, One Symphony concert and community outreach effort. This year will feature works inspired by the late Maya Angelou and the CSO is currently seeking submissions of new, original poems that responds to the question “what does freedom mean to you?”

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has announced the popular “Lumenocity” event will be returning to Washington Park in August for a third year.  But unlike the previous two concerts, this year people will have to pay to attend.

The 2015 “Lumenocity” will take place for five-nights from August 5 through 9.  It features a 3-D image projection mapping on the front of Music Hall choreographed to music performed by the CSO.
