In 2013 our mission was clear, find a creative and engaging way to introduce our new Music Director Louis Langreé. The event was to be a gift to Louis from the people of Cincinnati and so it was imbued with a personal sense of civic pride for every guest. In 2014 our big idea was to celebrate the inspired people of the city who for years had been contributing so much to our revitalization and success. Having seen the show the year before, audiences would come with so many expectations for the new show. Our job then became clear again, break expectations and exceed them at every turn.
