We are delighted to announce that the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra will be performing at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 27th August as part of the 2017 BBC Proms programme.

Led by Musical Director Louis Langrée, the programme for the evening will be in keeping with the CSO’s history of championing American music, with a performance of Leonard Bernstein’s ‘Symphonic Suite’ from On the Waterfront, a highly descriptive symphonic portrait of New York City. In 1942, at the height of World War Two, the CSO premiered Aaron Copland’s ‘Lincoln Portrait’ written as a musical tribute to the former president, and will perform it again with a special guest speaker to be announced soon. Tchaikovsky’s majestic Symphony No. 5 will conclude the second half of the concert.

Founded in 1895, the CSO is the sixth oldest orchestra in the United States, and the first to be broadcast to a national radio audience in 1921. This concert coincides with an extensive European tour in which the CSO will visit countries including Scotland, Spain, and others to be announced soon.

Details of all concerts and events in the 2017 Proms season were announced today. Tickets are now available to purchase from the Royal Albert Hall website.

WildKat PR is very happy to announce and welcome our newest client, The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.

CSO is a dynamic ensemble of some of the world’s finest musicians. As the sixth oldest symphony orchestra in the U.S. and the oldest orchestra in Ohio, it has played a leading role in the cultural life of Greater Cincinnati and the Midwest since its founding in 1895.

Louis Langrée, CSO’s current Music Director, began his tenure as the CSO’s 13th Music Director in the 2013-2014 season with a celebrated program. The New York Times said “deftly combined nods to the orchestra’s history, the city’s musical life and new music.” Over the Orchestra’s 120-year history, it has also been led by Leopold Stokowski, Eugène Ysaÿe, Fritz Reiner, Eugene Goossens, Max Rudolf, Thomas Schippers, Jesús López-Cobos, and Paavo Järvi, among others.

During the 2015-16 season, the CSO continued the tradition of commissioning new music with the world premieres of seven works including three Concertos for Orchestra, by composers Sebastian Currier, Thierry Escaich and Zhou Tian. Live recordings were made out of each of these new concertos for commercial release, and is the second CSO recording with Music Director Louis Langrée. The album will be released on 17th November by the Orchestra’s own record label Fanfare. A short web documentary will soon be released in three parts, covering each of the three pieces and featuring interviews with Louis Langrée and the three composers who come from three different continents.

WildKat PR will be providing PR service for The CSO in the US, UK and France. Keep up to date with the orchestra’s latest news on its website, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and WildKat PR blog.

Graduating from Yale University with a master’s degree in music, Bryce is best known as the guitarist from Brooklyn-based rock group The National and is also a highly established composer and curator. Bryce is the founder of Cincinnati’s acclaimed MusicNOW Festival and composer-in-residence at Muziekgebouw Frits Philips in Eindhoven, Netherlands.

Bryce has shared a stage with Steve Reich, Nico Muhly, Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood and many other eminent musicians.

This season will be an exciting one for Bryce.

The album will include Bryce’s compositions “Tenebre,” “Little Blue Something,” “Tour Eiffel,” and “Aheym” and is a collaboration with Grammy award-winning Kronos Quartet.
