The May Festival Chorus has earned acclaim locally, nationally and internationally for its musicality, vast range of repertoire and sheer power of sound. The Chorus of 130 professionally trained singers is the core artistic element of the Cincinnati May Festival as well as the official chorus of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Cincinnati Pops.
We are anticipating a very exciting season ahead as we return to Cincinnati’s newly renovated Music Hall. The upcoming season will include performances with the CSO of major works by Bach, Brahms, Debussy, Carl Orff and a world premiere by Julia Adolphe. The 2018 May Festival repertoire will be announced soon.
