CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is pleased to present a fun-filled classical music experience for the entire family performed by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra's Brass Trio. The CSO @ The Library concert is 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Pleasant Ridge Branch Library.
The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is a dynamic ensemble of some of the world’s finest musicians. The fifth oldest symphony orchestra in the U.S. and the oldest orchestra in Ohio, the CSO has played a leading role in the cultural life of Greater Cincinnati and the Midwest since its founding in 1895.
A local literary society formed the Pleasant Ridge Library Association in 1879. Members purchased shares, while non-members paid a small annual fee to borrow books. When Pleasant Ridge became a village in 1891, the library moved to a room in the Town Hall. The practice of charging dues ended when the village commenced financial support.
