The mission of Matinée Musicale Cincinnati is to serve and enrich the Greater Cincinnati community through professional recitals of classical music, as well as events such as master classes, and by awarding grants to qualifying nonprofits focused on music education.
Matinée Musicale presents the finest national and international vocalists and instrumentalists in an annual recital series. Our musically active and knowledgeable membership seeks out up-and-coming as well as established performers.
We are pleased to announce that we will kick off our new season on Sunday, September 8th, at 3 pm with an Open House at Memorial Hall. Please join us in celebrating our new venue, the recently renovated historic Memorial Hall in Over the Rhine, with tours, live entertainment and refreshments.
Our first soloist of the new season will be Joshua Brown, a 17-year-old violinist, on Sunday, October 8th at 3 pm. Pianist Claire Huangci will return after an acclaimed 2015 Matinée Musicale performance to perform on Thursday, November 9th at 11 am at the Anderson Center. Then, Metropolitan Opera star Jamie Barton, mezzo-soprano, will sing on Friday, January 26 at 7:30 pm at Memorial Hall. Next, Julian Bliss, clarinetist, will perform on Sunday, February 18 at Memorial Hall. Finally, on Sunday, April 8 at 3 pm, an award-winning duo, Yolanda Kondonassis, harp, and Jason Vieaux, guitar, will close our 105th season.
