We look forward to seeing you at our next recital! Most performances take place at Memorial Hall, located in the heart of the revitalized arts district of Over-the-Rhine (OTR). Memorial Hall sits adjacent to Music Hall, directly across the street from recently renovated Washington Park, and just blocks away from OTR’s entertainment and restaurant district.


Memorial Hall is located in historic Over-the-Rhine (OTR) just north of downtown Cincinnati. It is situated just south of Music Hall and across from Washington Park. It is easily accessible from I-75 and I-71.

How much do tickets and subscriptions cost?

How do I buy tickets?

Tickets may be purchased by calling the Memorial Hall Box Office (513-977-8838) Tuesday –Friday, 1-6 PM, online ($3 handling fee per ticket), on the Tickets page, or in person beginning 1 hour before the performance.

Where do I park?

There are many other lots and garages within walking distance to Memorial Hall. To learn about subscriber parking benefits, view the Subscriber section of the Ticket info page.

When should I arrive?

Seating generally begins 30-45 minutes prior to the concert. If you arrive late, you will need to wait for a break in the program to be seated.

How long does a recital last?

The average program lasts between 1 ½ and 2 hours, including intermission, and is followed by a reception.

What should I wear?

There is no dress code. Be comfortable, but tasteful.

When should I clap?

It’s customary to clap at the end of the piece. When the work consists of several sections, called movements, it can be confusing. If you’re unsure, just wait and watch. Although clapping between movements has become more common, it does interrupt the mood and flow of the music.

May I meet the artists?

In the past, every recital was followed by an informal reception where the artists could meet with attendees for conversation, selfies, and refreshments.  However, with current Covid restrictions, this may not always be possible.

May I take pictures or video during the performance?

No, but you may take pictures with friends before or after the concert.

What ages are the concerts suitable for?

Children are permitted as long as they can sit quietly through an entire performance.

Are drinks and food permitted?

Food is not permitted in the concert hall. Purchased drinks are permitted, and a cash bar is available before the concert and at intermission.

May I text or use my phone during the performance?

No, use of cell phones is not permitted during the performance.  Phones should be turned off or put in silent mode.
