The Cincinnati Symphony's fourth and final light and music show runs this weekend. "Lumenocity: Re-Imagine" is being held indoors this year because of construction at Music Hall.


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.

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 Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra's Chris Pinelo calls LumenoCity a beautiful marriage of incredible orchestral music and remarkable technology and animation.  About 5,000 people gathered at Washington Park for Thursday night's rehearsal of the CSO's annual music and light show.

 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.
