Beyond the Bricks: Music Hall Outreach Program

Music Hall is closed for a 17-month-long renovation, but you can still experience its grandeur! SPMH is presenting walking tours of this National Historic landmark - Cincinnati's premier performing arts and cultural center.

''Beyond the Bricks'' Walking Tour

Beyond the Bricks

Join us for a 90-minute outdoor walking tour of this National Historic Landmark. The Society for the Preservation of Music Hall's knowledgeable guides take you on a 360-degree, around-the-building view of Cincinnati Music Hall's history and fabulous architecture. Learn about Music Hall's design construction, architectural styles and the cultural neighborhood of 1878. Historians, architecture enthusiasts and adventurers alike will gain new insight into why Cincinnati Music Hall truly merits its designation as one of the best and most beautiful concert theaters in the world.

''Beyond the Bricks'' launches Saturday, August 6, at 10am; tours are held Saturdays from 10:00am to 11:30am and Thursdays from 4:00pm to 5:30pm. Tours are entirely outdoors, rain or shine. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes, and sunscreen, hat and sunglasses are recommended. No pets - no alcohol, but bring bottled water. And individuals under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. 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. For more information, check out the Tour's Frequently Asked Questions.
