Culture FIX: Feb. 14-20

Check out interesting things to do in some of the area’s historic places of worship. Not all is sacred, though. Theater, children’s programs, chamber music, an organ concert and some Bach will grace chancels across the city. Plus, a whole lot more…

Culture FIX: Feb. 7-13

Weekends are certainly the time to get out and enjoy a concert or an art exhibit, but have you ever tried relaxing in front of an artsy movie or some jazz after a long day at work? Take advantage of an empty restaurant or easy downtown parking on a Monday night and plan an evening at The Woodward. How about some Camp Washington Chili and the American Sign Museum on Thursday?

Culture FIX: Jan. 24-30

If this week’s culture agenda doesn’t get you off the couch, nothing will. Visual art takes a commanding lead with a bevy of exhibit openings. If music is your gig, the CSO plays a crowd-pleasing program of Mozart favorites (no, there won’t be “too many notes”), while Christ Church Cathedral music tunes up, again, after their busy holiday season. Enjoy!

Culture FIX: Jan. 10-16

In the bleak midwinter the Cincinnati arts scene is far from bleak. Resist the urge to settle in under a cozy blanket with a good book. Venture out and continue to support artists and performers who contribute to our culture year ‘round.

Culture FIX: Jan. 3-9

Happy New Year and welcome back! We are excited to explore with you all of the arts and culture the Queen City has to offer in 2024. Enjoy this week’s offerings to ease you back into your culture routine once all of the pecan pie and everything cheese is gone.

Culture FIX: Dec. 13-19

If too much shopping and singing and decorating have you in a squeeze, take a night off and relax with something outside of your holiday norm. And this being our last Culture FIX of 2023, make sure to check out TICKET WATCH at the bottom of this column for remaining December events you should get your tickets for NOW! Have a warm and festive holiday season and see you next year.

Culture FIX: Nov. 22-28

Take a deep breath and rest a bit before the culture-saturated holiday season heats up. Enjoy time with family and friends and take in some Queen City favorites, together. Families can enjoy the Christkindlmarkt or some fun on the Purple People Bridge. Or, drop the kids at Grandma’s and head out for a date night to the symphony. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Culture FIX: Nov. 15-21

Do you like jazz? How about lights? There’s a lot of both this week. Not a bad thing. And Shakespeare is plentiful, if that’s your gig. The CSO performs an interesting operatic version of “Hamlet”, fully staged and designed by Paris’ famed Opéra Comique while Xavier stages “Twelfth Night.” Enjoy.

Culture FIX: Nov. 8-14

Yours Truly is truly glad to be back on the beat, guiding you in search of your next FIX. This week is a cornucopia of events from art openings to movies to a big brass band. Indulge yourself before the busy holiday season really gears up and find something inspiring or fun or relaxing to do.

Culture FIX: Oct. 18-24

Fall is definitely here. Yep, leaves are falling and so is the temperature, but the Queen City never falls short of artsy things to do. Get a serious percussion fix or check out some interesting art openings. May Festival makes a special ,off-season appearance or you can hear a little mid-week Beethoven. Aaaand, there’s COFFEE.
