The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has announced a Cincinnati Pops performance featuring award-winning Cynthia Erivo.
The Grammy-, Emmy- and Tony-winning actress and singer will come to Cincinnati March 29. Erivo performed in Cincinnati at Classical Roots in 2017 and is back by popular demand, per a release from CSO. The performance will reunite her with conductor John Morris Russell and will be her debut with the Cincinnati Pops.
The CSO announced its 2021-22 season in June, followed two weeks later by the announcement that music director Louis Langrée will conclude his 11-year tenure with the CSO in 2024.
But there are still another three years to revel in the maestro’s engaging elegance. Langrée has programmed intriguing concerts, internationally renowned soloists, world premieres and an exciting collaboration with MusicNOW in September.
Both the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Pops schedules maintain a commitment to programming and performances by women and artists of colors throughout the year.
The season kicked off recently with a celebration of new and Classical music forms as the CSO collaborates with MusicNOW for a weekend featuring Bonny Light Horseman, pianist Daniil Trifonov and the always brilliant Sō Percussion.
The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Cincinnati Pops have COVID-19 safety protocols in place. Along with other Cincinnati arts organizations and venues, CSO and Cincinnati Pops have joined together to present uniform precautions going into the fall season. Audience members for upcoming productions at participating venues must wear masks as well as bring proof of a COVID vaccine or a negative COVID test, plus a photo ID.
