Bringing a Cincinnati icon back to life


IABC’s November program explored the various challenges presented by renovating one of the most iconic structures in the city of Cincinnati. Chris Pinel0, Vice President of Communications for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (CSO), and Meghan Berneking, Director of Communications for CSO, shared how they managed a $143 million overhaul of the Music Hall.

From moving the CSO’s performances to dealing with backlash over chandeliers, Chris and Meghan dealt with a number of challenges during the process. In the end, they managed not only to retain important season ticket subscribers, but energized the community with an unveiling of a better than ever facility that is designed for today’s audiences.

The evening concluded with a tour of Music Hall, including backstage access.
