Cincinnati Music Hall Modernizes While Preserving History

Stage Directions

Built in 1878, Cincinnati Music Hall has long housed performances by the Cincinnati Ballet, Symphony Orchestra, Opera and more. Its ornate architectural features earned the building its status as a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior. Nearing 40 years since its most recent renovation, the venue needed a major remodeling to improve its infrastructure and audience experience. To execute the revitalization of Cincinnati Music Hall, while maintaining the integrity of the building’s history, designers and project managers quickly pulled in ETC.
