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.

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.

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.

  For many, the enjoyment of classical music is part of everyday life. But there also many of us who have limited exposure to classical music, maybe an orchestra concert in the park, or at an event such as LumenoCity. Over the last several years, performers, orchestras and music organizations have been trying new approaches to engage a much larger percentage of the public to listen, appreciate, and learn about the music of Tchaikovsky, Chopin, Bach, and other great composers. But if you’'re new to classical music and want to hear and learn more, where do you start? Joining us to answer that question is Laura Sabo, organizer of Classical Revolution Cincinnati; musician Heidi Yenney, who plays with Collegium Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, concert;nova, and the Amicus Chamber Players; and, Classical 90.9 WGUC Music Director Jessica Lorey. Her blog, Clef Notes, provides a nice forum for exploring the world of classical music.
