Artistry is all around us. Art is an exhilarating dance in a food market. Art is relished in old, beautifully restored buildings. Art is participatory on historic bridges. Well-appointed concert halls are nice. Expertly curated museums are comfortable, but try on something new this week.
A long-dead artist, a terrible opera singer, a friendly but homesick alien and a Man in Black walk into a bar . . . Well, wait a minute. Actually, they’re walking into Culture FIX this week. There’s no punch line here, just another varied, unpredictable week full of activity in Cincinnati’s arts and culture scene.
Summer temperatures might be wafting down, but the Cincinnati arts and culture scene is still hot, hot, HOT! The Queen City’s plate is heaped with diversity this week. You can shop or paddle or read and there’s always something interesting to eat. (Goetta is “interesting,” I’ll give it that). Load up your calendar and enjoy!
Don’t be misled by the “chamber music” part of CCO’s name. Under the leadership of music director Eckart Preu, CCO has developed into an ensemble willing to go almost anywhere, musically speaking. What’s more, Maestro Preu makes it all so intriguing that the audience willingly tags along for the adventure.
