Cincinnati Symphony's stability, growth in stark contrast to many other U.S. orchestras


The New York Times took notice of last week's announcements from Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra about its successful fundraising campaign and a new musician contract that will allow it to hire 14 more full-time players over the next four years. Classical music writer Michael Cooper says that the CSO's expansion of the ensemble to 90 members is in stark contrast to many other orchestras around the country, from Philadelphia to Atlanta, that are shedding positions to save money.

"The orchestra world is all too familiar with vicious cycles of mounting deficits, dwindling audiences, difficulty raising money and cuts," Cooper writes. "But at the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, things are moving happily in the opposite direction: think crescendo, not diminuendo."

Cincinnati Opera gets national nod in opera guide for beginners


HuffPost Arts & Culture has published what it calls "Your Definitive Guide to Going to the Opera," with tips about which operas to see depending on your tastes in movies, what to wear and what to do at intermission.

The section concludes with a photo slideshow of America's top 14 opera companies, including Cincinnati Opera. Strangely, the photo they use to illustrate Cincinnati Opera is of a solo pianist in an empty Music Hall — the exact opposite of the local company's lavish productions, amazing sets and live orchestra.

Price Hill: A Cincinnati neighborhood climbs back

There is a palpable sense of investment in Price Hill. People cut their lawns and paint the trim. A locally-owned coffee house opened. Across from the coffee shop, real estate investor Bill Burwinkel transformed a derelict, century-old building into an art gallery and high-end apartments. Tom Croft, who restored his aging Italianate home to perfection, meets weekly with his neighbors to brainstorm about local problems.
