Chamber Music Cincinnati has a great season of concerts coming up, including the first one on October 1 with the Miro Quartet. Anne Arenstein and Chamber Music Cincinnati President John Spencer preview the entire season.
The Newport-based trio played in the Lounge – the smallest of the three stages – and they immediately filled the room to capacity with exuberant fans, curious onlookers like me, and an unearthly powerful sound. As soon as their set was finished, I made a beeline to the merch table and picked up a copy of their 6-song CD, The Collapse.
The songs on The Collapse read like a post-apocalyptic diary written by those left behind after the cataclysm, but who have still been deeply affected by something much bigger and scarier than themselves. The tracks are punctuated by bits of radio static or odd recorded clips that seem to cry out “Is there anybody out there?”
The second annual Bunbury Music Festival is ready to kick off three days of live music along the Cincinnati riverfront July 12, 13 and 14 with headliners Fun., MGMT, and The National. Jim Nolan is joined by festival founder and producer Bill Donabedian to discuss changes from year one and some of the other acts festival-goers will hear.
They’re back! Suits That Rock, the successful fundraising concert for the The Carnegie in Covington returns with a summer themed event – SwimSuits That Rock – on June 22 and 29. Local business and civic leaders show off their true passion, music, by strapping on their guitars and beating their drums, all to support the children’s art education programs at The Carnegie. One of the rockers (and co-founder of this event), Fidelity Investments’ Kevin Canafax, joins Jim Stump with more information on the performers, the music, and the work of The Carnegie.
Sitting at the top of Devou Park in Covington, the Behringer Crawford Museum chronicles the history and culture of Northern Kentucky. In addition to a variety of permanent and special exhibits, the Museum hosts a number of special events, none more popular than their summer music series. Laurie Risch, executive director of the museum, and Mark Schalchter, volunteer coordinator ofMusic@BCM, join Mark Perzel to share some of the upcoming music and displays visitors will be able to enjoy during the summer.
