The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s “One City, One Symphony” project aims to connect the community through music and themes relevant to everyday lives. This weekend’s “heroes” theme will be interpreted through the music of Beethoven, Mahler and Albéric Magnard. The symphony performs Beethoven’s “Coriolan Overture,” a dramatic interpretation of legendary Roman leader Caius Marcius Coriolanus; Magnard’s “Hymne à la justice” (Magnard is considered a national hero in France after he died trying to protect his home and family from German soldiers in WWI); and Mahler’s “Symphony No. 1,” nicknamed “Titan.” 


11 a.m. Friday; 8 p.m. Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday. $12-$105. Music Hall, 1241 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine, cincinnatisymphony.org.
