So if you live in Cincinnati, there's a pretty good chance you were either at Lumenocity this past weekend or you have at least heard about it. But for those of you who didn't hear or don't live in Cincinnati-this is for you. This event is one of the coolest things I have experienced and it gave a sense of community pride that I have never seen in such large numbers before in my life.
The event took place in Washington Park in Over-the-Rhine, and was centered around Music Hall. It was organized to celebrate Louis Langrée becoming the new Music Director of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Lumenocity was the first of its kind, a free live performance of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra coordinated to an incredible light show displayed across the front of Music Hall. Truly an unique experience.
Since it was a free event, there was large number in attendance-an estimated 25,000-30,000 attended between Saturday and Sunday nights. That's insane! I think it proved that not only does Cincinnati have a huge appreciation for the arts, but that we also are getting behind all the efforts to improve and love our city.
I took a lot of pictures-a lot of which you have probably seen, but I'm going to share them anyway because it hasn't gotten old seeing everyone's pictures yet. I will continue to appreciate how amazing this event was and am so glad I was fortunate enough to be in attendance:
