CINCINNATI MUSICAL HIGHLIGHTS NOVEMBER

untitledMUSICAL HIGHLIGHTS: NOVEMBER

These are just a few of the many musical events that crowd the month of November right up to Thanksgiving week. CCM remains the largest presenter of performing arts events in the State of Ohio, as will be evident by the number of CCM events highlighted here. Many of these are free, and those that are not, are reasonably priced. Look for the remaining Bernstein Festival events and the production of Britten’s The Turn of the Screw.

Elsewhere, concert nova is featuring George Crumb’s Black Angels, and David Lang’s Little Match Girl Passion is given its local premiere by the new Coro Volante in Hyde Park’s  Church of the Redeemer.
