The only art I'll ever study is stuff that I can steal from - David Bowie
Turning "Traditional" a Bit Upside Down
We've long been proud to call Cincinnati our home for many reasons. One of those being the vibrant arts culture, with robust schedules and award-winning performances from the ballet, opera, symphony, theater and more. And over the past month, we've been working side by side with many of these organizations to help them present themselves a little differently than most would think. 


Cincinnati Opera Express Takes Opera to the Community

The Cincinnati Opera is making it even easier for the community to experience the opera - something not everyone has the chance to see - with the Cincinnati Opera Express

The 28-foot box truck transforms into a 20x20 foot performance center, complete with set decorations, lighting and audio - all free to those who attend. Artists sing and narrate excerpts from popular operas to transport audiences to the piece's visually-rich settings, from the Parisan countryside to a Chinese imperial palace or the streets of Italy. 

The Opera Express was funded in part by OPERA America. As authorized dealers of manufactures such as Shure and Yamaha, Event Enterprises served the role of selling the Opera the audio system inclusive of a digital console, speakers and wireless microphones to outfit the truck.
Dayton Philharmonic Goes to the Movies

Music is at the heart of a lot of what we do at Event Enterprises, so we may be a little biased when we feel that it's the music and scores that bring movies alive for an audience. There's no better way to create suspense, drama, fear, sadness or happiness than through music. That's why we were excited to work with our friends at the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra for their Pixar in Concert program earlier this month.

Select scenes from popular Pixar movies, including Toy Story, The Incredibles, A Bug's Life, Cars and many others, were projected above symphony members as they played the famous pieces that accompanied each magical movie moment. 

We were proud to be "on stage" with them, having provided backline that was programmed to trigger various sounds and musical patches provided by the movie studio.

Bangin' on Some Pots & Pans in Music Hall...

This past weekend, renowned percussionist, Colin Curie was featured as a guest artist and presented a unique percussion concerto accompanied by The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra at Music Hall. 

Titled riSE and fLY by Pulitzer Prize winning composer, Julia Wolfe, Currie performed on everything from his own body to various "found" instruments such as buckets, metal plates, inverted jars, and modified cymbals. 

All of this was inspired by American folk tradition and the "urban folk rhythms of the street" as heard by New York street musicians. EE was asked to support Currie's performance by supplying some of the percussion items and hardware for his concerto setup along with a Yamaha QL1 digital console dedicated for his "instrument's" amplification.
