Cincinnati Symphony’s 2016 Lumenocity festival to be held indoors

Posted on: April 18, 2016

“Yes, Lumenocity is returning,” writes Janelle Gelfand in Friday’s (4/15) Cincinnati Enquirer (Ohio). “But this time, you won’t need sunscreen, hats or rain gear…. For the first time since it began in 2013, the high-tech symphonic light spectacle is moving indoors. That’s because Music Hall, which has served as the outdoor canvas for the show for three years, is scheduled to be a construction zone. So this year’s Lumenocity, which has drawn tens of thousands of people to Washington Park in the past, will be at the Taft Theatre, Downtown, Aug. 5 through 7…. What they’ll be going for is a kind of ‘indoor Lumenocity,’ said Trey Devey, president of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra…. Lumenocity 2016 will be the last time the orchestra presents the show, Devey said. That’s because, in 2017, the organization will be preoccupied with moving back into a renovated Music Hall…. A free Lumenocity Block Party on Fifth Street will replace Washington Park’s Lumenocity Village…. Lightborne, a design studio and production company based in Over-the-Rhine [neighborhood], is creating the visual displays this year.… There will also be, as in former years, live broadcasts and web streams. And a live web stream will be available on”
