“This is a concert that needs to be shared,” said Mr. Langrée. So at the end of the performance, we feel as if we want to hug our neighbors in brotherhood.”

“The goal behind this telecast is to allow people to experience this music together, even if they aren’t able to attend the concert,” said CSO Vice President of Communications Chris Pinelo. “There are several hospitals and retirement communities that will be receiving the live feed of the concert, but we also wanted there to be access to the concert in public spaces. Having the concert shown at community gathering centers such as Fountain Square, Newport-on-the-Levee and Batesville Memorial Public Library sums up the spirit of ‘One City, One Symphony’ by bringing people from all walks of life together with music,” he said.

The telecast is thanks to partnerships with CET and WCUC, and is being made possible by funding from The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, along with One City, One Symphonysponsors, The Jewish Foundation and the The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation.

The concert program at Music Hall will be performed Thursday, November 15 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, November 17 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, November 18 at 2 p.m. The November 17 program is the only one that will be fed live to the remote locations.

The CSO is grateful to CSO Masterworks Series Sponsor U.S. Bank. The Concert Sponsor for these performances is Fort Washington Investment Advisors, Inc. The ArtsWave Partner Company for these performances is Toyota.
