The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, recorded last November at Music Hall as part of its “One City, One Symphony” project, is slated to air on Cincinnati’s CET Arts channel six times between April 28 and May 1. The “One City, One Symphony” initiative took place throughout Cincinnati in October and November 2012 and was modeled on the national “One City, One Book” reading programs held annually around the country. The CSO television broadcast features Music Director Designate Louis Langrée leading the orchestra and vocal soloists in the Beethoven symphony, as well as in Schoenberg’s A Survivor from Warsaw. Television station CET was one of dozens of community partners participating in “One City, One Symphony,” which was designed to create deepen community engagement within the Cincinnati region. The broadcast has also been released as a free digital download at the CSO’s website. For more in-depth coverage of “One City, One Symphony,” visit the spring issue of Symphony.
