The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra will kick off 2015 with their traditional concert and gala on December 31 with special guest vocalist Storm Large. Conductor John Morris Russell previews all the festivities with Frank Johnson.

The Cincinnati Pops have just released their newest CD, Carnival of the Animals, the 93rd album in the orchestra’s illustrious history, and we hear a little bit of the music.
