The odds of landing a coveted seat in one of the great American orchestras is slim and the competition is fierce. For minority musicians the stakes are even higher. Just four percent of players in U.S. orchestras are African American or Latino.

Greet news for CSO fans! The 2016-17 Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra season debuts 8 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 8, on classical 90.9 WGUC-FM.

Listeners also can hear the CSO recordings for one week after Sunday broadcasts by going to the inconcert.cincinnatisymphony website.

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has announced the popular “Lumenocity” event will be returning to Washington Park in August for a third year.  But unlike the previous two concerts, this year people will have to pay to attend.

The 2015 “Lumenocity” will take place for five-nights from August 5 through 9.  It features a 3-D image projection mapping on the front of Music Hall choreographed to music performed by the CSO.
