May Festival 2017


One of the stars of this year’s May Festival is the first-ever Dream Project, a multimedia exploration of dramatic works by Mendelssohn and Elgar.

Greetings From the Board Chair and Executive Director


This year’s lineup of extraordinary guest singers and conductors, complemented by our own May Festival Chorus and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, represents a new approach to presenting these classic works. 

Chorus Spotlight: Anita Greer


As a 28-year member of the May Festival Chorus and with a background as a professional singer, soprano Anita Greer has sung her share of masterworks, so it is a rare but exciting event when a choral work that is new to her appears on the program. 

Music Hall Renovation Overview


While the May Festival 2017 season takes place in the beautiful Taft Theatre, we are now fewer than five months from the unveiling of the May Festival’s home for 2018 and onward: the renovated Music Hall, opening on October 6.
