Cincinnati May Festival
May 21, 2020 - May 31, 2020
*This event has been cancelled.*
Now in its 147th year, the Cincinnati May Festival continues to perform great choral music during this 10-day event in 2020. The all-volunteer May Festival Chorus, 130 members strong, remains the event’s bulwark and chief attraction, and with good reason. The Cincinnati May Festival will present nine performances during the 2020 festival, which takes place between May 21 and 31 at the Cincinnati Music Hall as well as other locations.
Catch an additional performance on April 5 at the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption in Covington, Kentucky. Joining the festival’s artistic leadership team of principal conductor Juanjo Mena and director of choruses Robert Porco is 2020 artistic partner John Adams. The 2020 festival focuses on music and themes originating in the Americas and includes works by nine living composers. It also celebrates Beethoven’s 250th birthday with expressions of freedom in the music hall opener.
