Artistic Leadership



anchor

The May Festival continues to be an invaluable anchor each year in Cincinnati’s evolving social and cultural scene. It is the reason Music Hall was built and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra was formed. It has endured…because it has stayed relevant by changing and not just repeating the standard repertoire of choral masterworks. - Editorial, Cincinnati Enquirer
