Beyond the Bricks: Music Hall Outreach Programs

Music Hall is closed and renovation work continues Beyond the Bricks throughout the structure, but you can still experience its grandeur! SPMH is presenting Virtual Tours of this National Historic landmark - Cincinnati's premier performing arts and cultural center.

''Beyond the Bricks'' Virtual Tours

Virtual tours of Music hall are part of the SPMH Speaker Series and can be held at your location. These Virtual Tours/Speaker Series are about 1-hour long, feature images and information about Music Hall, and can be somewhat tailored according to the audience.

''Beyond the Bricks'' Walking Tours Resume in Spring 2017!

For 90 minutes, the Society for the Preservation of Music Hall's knowledgeable guides take you back through time to experience, through exceptionally-researched stories Cincinnati Music Hall's history and fabulous architecture, as well as that of the surrounding environs. The tour includes insight into Music Hall's design and anecdotes about construction, insight into the architectural styles both of the structure and the cultural neighborhood of 1878. Historians, architecture enthusiasts and adventurers alike can gain new insight into why Cincinnati Music Hall truly merits its designation as a National Historic Landmark and remains one of the best and most beautiful concert theaters in the world.

Beyond the Bricks

When ''Beyond the Bricks'' tours resume, they will be held on Saturdays from 10:00am to 11:30am and on Thursdays from 4:00pm to 5:30pm through October 2017. The walking tours are entirely outdoors, rain or shine. While we are happy to make reasonable accommodations for all people, tours are not recommended for very young children or people for whom walking is difficult. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
