CINCINNATI – The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (CSO) announced that best-selling and most-awarded female gospel artist of all time, CeCe Winans, will perform with the Orchestra’s Classical Roots concert at Music Hall on Friday, March 6, 2020. A popular annual event, Classical Roots brings together 150 singers from churches throughout the region to perform with the CSO, celebrating African American musical traditions. This year’s concert will be led by Cincinnati Pops Principal Guest Conductor Damon Gupton.
“It’s a true treat for me to be able to collaborate with my hometown Gospel legend, the one and only CeCe Winans,” said Gupton. “No doubt her joyous spirit combined with the wonderful Classical Roots Community Choir under the direction of Maestro William Henry Caldwell will be something to remember.”
Classical Roots is one of the most highly-anticipated CSO events of the year. The concert continues to create bridges between the CSO and the region’s neighborhoods with the annual performance and concurrent activities.
Tickets for the Classical Roots concert are on sale now and start at just $14. Tickets are available for purchase by calling the CSO Box Office at 513.381.3300 or visiting cincinnatisymphony.org.
