LumenoCity: A Fabulous Welcome

Music Hall Facade During LumenoCity
Louis Langrée
     To welcome Maestro Louis Langrée as the new conductor for the Cincinnati Symphony, the city planned a party to host the entire community.  Borrowing from visual effects that have been previously used at such celebrations as the Queen's 60th Jubilee in 2012, the show was taken to new heights at a 40-minute length and a live symphony accompaniment. We were situated on the perimeter of Washington Park so we didn't have the best vantage point, but
given that there were 12,000 to 15,000 people it was difficult to find a perfect spot sans landscaping.  For those of you who would like a preview of the remaining performance, or for those of you who had to miss this extravaganza, here is an excerpt from youtube with "Bolero" being played in the background.
