Classical Roots sells out Music Hall

Common performs with the CSO.

Start with the Classical Roots Community Mass Choir made up of 100 singers from dozens of area churches. Add the powerhouse vocals of Broadway actress/vocalist Capathia Jenkins. Bring in the star power of hip-hop artist Common, winner of the 2015 Academy Award for “Glory” and multiple Grammy, Golden Globe and BET awards. Then hand the baton to the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s John Morris Russell.

‘Suits’ take over Carnegie stage for two performances

Over the last eight years, more than 80 business and community leaders have traded in their suits and ties (and in some cases, heels) for a musical instrument and a stage. But this is more than a jam session among friends. This is Suits That Rock, an annual fundraising concert dreamed up by Kevin Canafax and John Domaschko. So why do the Suits pour their hearts and souls into this event every year? That’s simple … to celebrate the joy of music.
