Mrs. Louise Nippert, member and past president of Matinée Musicale Cincinnati, passed away Monday, July 22, 2012. We dedicated our 100th Anniversary Season to honor her memory. She celebrated her 100th Birthday in August 2011. Please click on Membership where you can see photos and read about events during Louise Nippert's past century. As she was about to began her second century she was honored as the recipient of the Governor's Award for the Arts in Ohio May 9, 2012 in Columbus.  

We continue to honor her. Thanks to her generous support of our organization throughout our history we were able to build an outstanding legacy of performances by presenting concert artists in their beginning years who later became world renown. 

Our History

The Matinée Musicale Club began in 1911 when a group of Cincinnati women, all performing musicians, presented five public concerts in each of the first two seasons. In 1913 the organization began to engage professional recitalists selected world wide, and thereby inaugurated the Matinée Musicale Recital Series.

The standard of musical excellence established by the founders of Matinée Musicale Cincinnati has continued uninterrupted since the inception of the recital series, thanks to the dedication of the active members, who have continued to work to present, on a non-profit basis, only the finest of musical talent. Careful consideration is given to selection and presentation of artists; and, in return, the public has given interested support and recognition of the cultural contributions the Matinée Musicale has provided our community.  Many of the distinguished musicians presented to this community have made their Cincinnati, and even American debuts under Matinée Musicale auspices.
