Music for Youth in Cincinnati

MYCincinnati Ambassador Ensemble Plays MusicNOW Festival

Friday, Jan 13th @ 10 am
Memorial Hall (1225 Elm St)
w/ Cincinnati Ballet & Festival Performers

MusicNOW was founded in 2006 by Bryce Dessner of The National. Through the years, the festival has invited contemporary musicians and risk-taking artists who do not fit neatly into genre defined categories. Past performances have included festival-only collaborations, world premiere compositions, and sold out audiences.

The 12th annual MusicNOW Festival returns, January 12-14 at the Aronoff Theatre, Taft Theatre, and Memorial Hall. Highlights include: Bob Weir and the Campfire Band, featuring members of the National; Bryce and Aaron Dessner collaborate with Pulitzer Prize finalist Timo Andres and the world-class Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, plus Grawemeyer Award-winner Andrew Norman pushes the orchestra to its limits in the Cincinnati premiere of Play. 

The MYCincinnati Ambassador Ensemble will perform their groundbreaking original work, inspired by their engagement with issues of social justice, power, and identity. WATCH & LISTEN.

MYCincinnati (Music for Youth in Cincinnati) is a free youth orchestra program in Price Hill. Founded on the idea that personal transformation can be achieved by striving towards musical excellence, MYCincinnati offers children in Price Hill the opportunity to learn violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, or clarinet, and play in an orchestra. MYCincinnati is inspired by El Sistema, Venezuela's revolutionary youth orchestra program that uses music as a vehicle for social change. Students enrolled in MYCincinnati meet for 10-15 hours a week at the Warsaw Avenue Firehouse, an inclusive community arts center in East Price Hill.
