Attended a Cincinnati Symphony concert at the wonderfully renovated Music Hall in November 2017. The orchestra was stellar, and the building sparkled. The acoustics are world class, the audience enjoyed the show, and the whole production (arrival, seating, show, intermission) was a treat.

Love the outlook of the building while I was at the Washington Park, walk by and take some. Picture of the building. Didn't know what it was until I search it online. Very beautiful indeed.
