Built in 1878, Music Hall was designed by acclaimed architect Samuel Hannaford, and in many ways it served as the city’s Convention Center up through the late 1960’s. Today, Music Hall remains one of the most adaptable historic concert venues in the world.
Despite being comprised of three separate buildings that are seemingly under one roof, Music Hall is best known for its central portion: the Springer Auditorium. The resident companies, which include the Cincinnati Ballet, Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestras, and May Festival continue to perform at Music Hall.
