Cincinnati Symphony plans second season of LumenoCity in August

Posted on: March 24, 2014

Brian Wiechert reports Friday (3/21) on Fox19.com (Cincinnati), “Following startling success in 2013, LumenoCity is returning for an encore this August. The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has announced that it is expanding the free concert experience for the community in Cincinnati’s Washington Park on August 1, 2 and 3…. The inaugural LumenoCity in 2013 drew record crowds to Washington Park and took the social media world by storm with over two million impressions on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The event brought 35,000 people over two nights to a former dilapidated park in the inner city, amplifying the revitalization of Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, Washington Park, the City’s burgeoning creative community and its reputation as a major cultural center in America. The 2014 LumenoCity concert performances will begin at 8:30 p.m. each of the three evenings with John Morris Russell conducting the Cincinnati Pops. After a brief intermission, Music Director Louis Langrée will lead the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra for an amazing display of sound and light. Three-dimensional image mapping will again be employed to create mind-blowing projected visual animations on the façade of Music Hall.”
