Cincinnati Symphony adds outdoor neighborhood concert series

Posted on: June 1, 2022

“The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has performed in area parks on and off for more than 60 years. But in mid-June, the CSO is launching a new series of outdoor concerts, taking the orchestra even deeper into the heart of Cincinnati neighborhoods,” writes David Lyman in Sunday’s (5/29) Cincinnati Enquirer (OH). “The Andrew J. Brady Neighborhood Concert Series is named for Andrew J. Brady, … who led his own jazz band in hundreds of famously popular park appearances throughout the region. John Morris Russell, who recently celebrated his 10th anniversary as leader of the Cincinnati Pops, will lead four of the five concerts. Enrico Lopez-Yañez, principal Pops Conductor of the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, will lead the fifth.… The musicians’ performances are just one part of broader celebrations that will include music labs, food trucks, arts and crafts exhibits. As details are finalized, a full list of vendors and activities will be available at the CSO’s website.” Included are concert details from June 19 to August 6. Locations include Maple Ridge Lodge in Westwood; Dunham Recreation Center Complex in Price Hill; Corinthian Baptist Church in Bond Hill; Laurel Park in West End; and Owl’s Nest Park in Evanston.
