Company Description: Comprised of the world’s finest musicians, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra aims to fulfill its mission: to seek and share inspiration. A cornerstone of the Cincinnati arts community, the CSO’s vision is to engage audiences and community better than any other orchestra in the world. The CSO, which also performs and records as the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, presents over 100 concerts and events annually, making Cincinnati the smallest population in the U.S. to support an Orchestra that performs 52-weeks a year. 

As Music Hall, the CSO’s performance home, undergoes renovation during the 2016-2017 season, the Orchestra has made the historic Taft Theatre its “home away from home.” Please note, during its season at the Taft Theatre, the administrative offices will operate out of the Carew Tower. The CSO will return to Music Hall, located in the historic and vibrant Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, upon completion of the renovation for its 2017-18 season.

As one of the oldest symphony orchestras in the United States, the CSO has achieved international critical acclaim and an operating budget that consistently places it among America’s top 10 orchestras. The CSO serves as an ambassador for Greater Cincinnati to the world through national and international tours and an extensive Grammy-winning recording catalog, with over 10 million recordings sold worldwide. The success of the CSO is predicated by its values: it is an orchestra determined for greatness and committed to experimentation that serves as Cincinnati’s ambassador to the world and remains devoted to the Cincinnati community.
