The May Festival is here

Eun Sun Kim with soloists for Verdi’s Requiem in Music Hall

The May Festival opened last night with a stunning performance of Verdi’s Requiem conducted by Eun Sun Kim — the first woman to lead the Cincinnati May Festival. Watch for a review later today at bizjournals.com/cincinnati/topic/arts.

And below are links to other preview stories that I’ve been writing for The Business Courier, part of their new initiative to provide arts coverage for our region:

One thought on “The May Festival is here

  1. Janelle: Have been enjoying your reviews for decades. We don’t disagree with your critique of MASS , but as non-musicians , as well as liberal Catholics., we appreciate it for the half-dozen times we have seen it on a more visceral level. As Mark Swed said wrote of the Dudamel LA Phil concert, “the Bernstein Mass is a mess, but it is our Mess.’ Of the dozen or so Verdi Requiems we have heard , Friday night’s was one of the most beautifully moving. Thanks for your writings,
    Joe & Eleanor
