Music Hall Memories

What is your favorite memory of Music Hall?

Over the lifetime of the structure, millions of people have entered Music Hall. Some came to dance under twinkling lights in the ballroom, swaying to the music in the arms of a beloved; others held the hand of a small child watching their first Nutcracker performance. Grandparents sat in seats in the auditorium, craning their necks to see a familiar youthful face accept a hard-won diploma. Do you remember how you felt the first time you walked into Music Hall or volunteered as an usher?

From spectacular performances of the Cincinnati Symphony, Pops, Opera or May Festival to proms, dances and weddings, Music Hall has a special place in your heart. Please share it with us!

SPMH is gathering memories, to include in our publication Music Hall Marks and to share online on this website.
