7:00 PM: Musical Guest
Tonight, we’re so pleased to welcome the Queen City Sisters to Marjorie P. Lee as they perform in the Event Center. The Queen City Sisters, Melanie Woodruff, Kirsten Smith, and Edy Dreith, came together in the fall of 2013 to revise and revamp the songs of the 40s and 50s with a new flair—starting with the incomparable Andrews Sisters whose style, look, and sound help shape our perception of the 40s. Many songs from this era are stamped in the musical collective consciousness, and the Queen City Sisters have found a bond with all ages while singing these classics.
The Queen City Sisters’ repertoire features tunes that show the different faces of humanity— love, loss, longing, and fun.

6:45 PM: Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra
This evening, the CSO encourages you to “skip the mall for Music Hall…” and an incredible all Tchaikovsky program. The Thanksgiving-weekend performance will mark the CSO debut of pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk, whose “blow-your-socks-off virtuosity is complemented with a dark, intense, ferociously concentrated essence and nature,” says London’s Gramophone. Gavrylyuk is set to wow with Tchaikovsky’s towering masterwork of the Russian romantic literature, and one of the best loved piano arrangements of all time, Piano Concerto No. 1 among many others.
