Located in Over-the-Rhine overlooking Washington Park, Music Hall is home to the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, Cincinnati Ballet, Cincinnati Opera, and May Festival Chorus among other local performing arts organizations. 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. The Music Hall Ballroom, added in 1927, hosts many local events throughout the year. Cincinnati Arts Association oversees programming and management of Cincinnati Music Hall as well as Aronoff Center for the Arts.
