LUMENOCITY returns for three magical nights!

On Friday, Saturday & Sunday, Aug. 1-3, Cincinnati's Washington Park will be the site for great music, stunning new animations, an all-new LUMENOCITY Village, and a few surprises.

 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.

Washington Park has become a gathering place for the city, and that is even more true during the summer months, when something is happening almost all the time in the Over the Rhine park, from kickball to group yoga, the City Flea to the World Market. And music, Jazz to Bluegrass to R&B. Brittney Carden, communications officer with Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC), and Jake Speed, of Jake Speed & The Freddies, clue us in to the many events going on at Washington Park this summer, along with some edification on the history and growing popularity of Bluegrass.

91.7 WVXU is the proud presenter of this summer’s Bandstand Bluegrass series at Washington Park (every Thursday night from 7-10pm from May 29 - August 28) and performing on June 5 is Cincinnati’s beloved Comet Bluegrass All Stars.

Staff Sgt. Billy Cook, a veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq, brought his family to the Army birthday and welcome home ceremony in Washington Park Friday. Tara Cook calls her husband’s 15 months in Iraq “a really long tour,” and worse for her than his more recent year in Afghanistan.  Cook’s wife and three children are happy he's serving stateside as a recruiter now.

Retired Major Sario Caravalho spoke of his three tours in Vietnam and the special men with whom he served during a salute to Vietnam era veterans.
