When the first Lumenocity debuted in 2013, it was a phenomenon that galvanized the city. Presented by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and designed by the OTR firm Brave Berlin (who had a team of 12 OTR designers and producers), it has given exposure to Music Hall, the symphony, visual art and a revitalized Over-the-Rhine. Should it continue? Let me know. And click here to read a summary of this year’s event

The final piece, the Fourth Movement of Brahms’ First Symphony, was an homage to Cincinnati icons and heroes.
The third number, to music by Saint-Saens, was a dreamlike fantasy that began as a love story between puppets.
Most nights, despite a few threatening showers, enjoyed picture-perfect weather this year.
Inside Music Hall, visitors could view Mark Clark’s amazing Lego display of Music Hall, Over-the-Rhine and the old (now demolished) Albee Theater. He says after this show, he is retiring from his Lego career… and currently, there is no permanent home for this amazing project.
