And then there were none.

Classical music reporter Janelle Gelfand was one of at least four Enquirer newsroom employees to lose their jobs Tuesday, the last of the Enquirer's arts writers.

For those of you wanting to hear pianist Emanuel Ax with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra on "SymphonyCast" Tuesday, June 13, you'll have to wait a while longer.

The national "SymphonyCast," broadcast at 7 p.m. Tuesdays on classical WGUC-FM 90.9., has changed programs. The Buffalo Philharmonic, with conductor JoAnn Falletta and violinist Michael Ludwig, will air Tuesday instead of the CSO.

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.

If you watched a local show on WCET-TV in the past 42 years,  you saw the work of producer-director Taylor Feltner.

Feltner, 65, who retires as production manager Thursday, was behind the scenes for all kinds of Channel 48 shows – back in the day when Channel 48 produced all kinds of local shows.

Lumenocity, the unique marriage of light and music that has filled Washington Park and illuminated Music Hall the last few summers, will end its run indoors at the Taft Theatre in early August.

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.
