Presented by Friends of Music Hall and Cincinnati Arts Association, Blink in the Ballroom, October 13 to 16, 2022, features acclaimed theater organist Trent Sims playing a medley of new and classic songs on the 1927 Mighty Wurlitzer Organ, from 7:00 to 10:00 pm each night in the Music Hall Ballroom. In addition, guests can experience two remarkable Music Hall models – one built of LEGO® bricks by Cincinnati-resident Mark Clark and one made with botanical materials by Applied Imagination in Alexandria, KY, which will later be displayed at Krohn Conservatory’s Holiday exhibit.
Free and open to the public. No ticket or reservation required. Concessions will be available for purchase. Restrooms will be open. Stop by Blink in the Ballroom before or after a performance of CSO Proof: Sun Dogs in Springer Auditorium.
Our annual Happy Holidays with the Mighty Wurlitzer concert will return on December 9, 2022 for one show only at 7 pm in the Ballroom, with live music and holiday festivities. Organist Mark Herman will perform along with members of the May Festival Chorus and dancers from the Otto Budig Academy. Tickets will go on sale in Fall 2022.
