Built in 1878 with private money raised from what is believed to be the nation’s first matching grant fund drive, this classic entertainment venue is considered one of the best and most beautiful concert theaters in the world, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1975. Home to the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (the fifth oldest symphony orchestra in the country), Cincinnati Pops Orchestra (one of the finest Pops orchestras in the country), the Cincinnati Opera (the nation’s second-oldest opera company), the Cincinnati Ballet (celebrating their 50th Anniversary during the 2013-14 Season), and the May Festival (the longest-running choral festival in the Western hemisphere), Music Hall originally served the City as its first convention center. Beyond the fine arts, the theater has hosted such entertainers as Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis, Bruce Springsteen, Prince, Elton John, Janis Joplin, BB King, Duran Duran, and Eric Clapton.
Today, Music Hall remains a popular destination for audiences. Glittering chandeliers and old world ambience set Music Hall apart from modern theaters, and the Music Hall Ballroom (added in 1927) is another must-see space in this unique venue. A spectacular setting for weddings, dances, corporate meetings, and trade shows, Music Hall continues to serve the community as a dramatic gathering place.
Located in the popular Over-the-Rhine neighborhood and adjacent to Washington Park, Music Hall is in close proximity to trendy restaurants and s
