Al Roane pleased with the tour I had the opportunity to take the amazing tour, BEYOND the BRICKS Cincinnati Music Hall Outreach, sponsored by SPMH and directed by Thea Tjepkema and Ramona Toussaint. Thea and Ramona did a magnificent job of sharing their knowledge of the architectural design and structural points of the building - one of the greatest icons in the city. It was extremely fascinating and I learned so much about the building where I usher for the Cincinnati Symphony, Pops, and Opera. The tour is well worth the time and effort and very educational. - Al Roane
