The May Festival has a voice in every season. Stay connected with us here and see what happens beyond the stage.

"I am thrilled to be working with the forward-looking May Festival Chorus and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra to bring powerful musical narratives to the historic May Festival. Paring new with old, the works resonate together across time and space to share the powerful vehicle of music — expressing who we were and who we are today.”
