American Orchestras in the Nineteenth Century

The “Queen City of the West” on the Ohio River established a series of orchestral organizations before the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (CSO), each one's successes and failures marking a new understanding of “permanence.” Cincinnati's greatest musical claim to fame was a festival tradition that grew quickly over the course of the 1870s. A large amount of travel was probably the most surprising Cincinnati Orchestra activity. The Cincinnati Philharmonic, the College of Music Orchestra, and the Cincinnati Orchestra became popular from the mid-1880s in Cincinnati. In the 1890s, the number and variety of outside orchestras that played in Cincinnati continued to grow. In general, the CSO provided outdoor pops concerts and holiday entertainment, as did the Boston Symphony, the National Symphony, and many other major American orchestras.
