I'm pleased to announce that classical music reporter Janelle Gelfand is bringing her "Janelle's Notes" arts blog to Cincinnati Public Radio before the grand reopening of Music Hall this weekend.

Gelfand, my long-time colleague and friend laid off by the Enquirer two weeks ago, is blogging for wguc.org here. She'll also comment about the arts and music scene on sister station WVXU-FM (91.7), starting with "Cincinnati Edition" at 1 p.m. this Friday (Oct. 6) about this weekend's opening of Music Hall after a $135-million renovation in the past year.

For those of you wanting to hear pianist Emanuel Ax with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra on "SymphonyCast" Tuesday, June 13, you'll have to wait a while longer.

The national "SymphonyCast," broadcast at 7 p.m. Tuesdays on classical WGUC-FM 90.9., has changed programs. The Buffalo Philharmonic, with conductor JoAnn Falletta and violinist Michael Ludwig, will air Tuesday instead of the CSO.

A year ago today, I revived my TV/Media blog here at WVXU.

I just want to say thanks to all my loyal readers and fans who followed me to Cincinnati Public Radio, and regularly check out my posts.

I love it here at WVXU, it's the perfect fit for me.

Cincinnati Public Radio and CET are partnering with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra to provide live broadcasts of next month's Lumenocity 2014 at Washington Park.  It's scheduled for August 1, 2 and 3 and the free tickets for the music and light show with Music Hall as a backdrop went quickly.
