Music Hall in Washington Park
A longtime dream for many Cincinnatians came true Friday night when Music Hall’s signature performers crossed Elm Street to perform at the newly reopened Washington Park as part of the park’s grand opening celebrations. The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Ballet, and the May Festival Summer Chorus collaborated to create a stunning experience for the capacity crowd that filled the park’s football field-sized civic lawn.
