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 sixth oldest symphony orchestra in the country), Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, the Cincinnati Ballet, 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.
Located in the popular Over-the-Rhine neighborhood and adjacent to Washington Park, Music Hall is in close proximity to trendy restaurants and shops, as well as the School for Creative and Performing Arts.
