Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Pops And May Festival Announce 2022-23 Digital Livestream Schedule

Eight full-length concerts will be livestreamed from Music Hall for free beginning in October.

All eight concerts will be premiered for free and streamed via YouTube and cincinnatisymphony.org/live. Following their digital premieres, all concerts will be freely accessible to the general public for seven days; subscribers and donors will receive extended viewing privileges in the CSO and Pops On Demand portal. Selected excerpts from each livestream will be subsequently released, accessible for free on the Orchestra's and May Festival's website and social media channels.

The 2022-23 season livestreams build upon a foundation of digital content that was catalyzed by the Covid-19 pandemic. To continue serving the Cincinnati community during the pandemic, the Orchestra made a significant commitment to digital innovation and was among the first U.S. orchestras to livestream concerts in 2020. Since then, the CSO, Pops and May Festival have produced and streamed 24 full-length concerts, reaching nearly two million viewers and creating a global community of virtual concertgoers.

"What began as a way to stay connected to our audiences, donors and community during the onset of the pandemic has become foundational to our offerings," said Jonathan Martin, President & CEO of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Pops, and May Festival. "In this rapidly evolving world of digital connections, our free livestreams continue to help us serve people we may never have reached through our traditional concert formats alone. Moreover, they are an important addition to the concert-going experience and amplify the work we do to serve our community beyond the walls of Music Hall."
