103rd Concert Season

The mission of Matinée Musicale Cincinnati, a non-profit organization, is to serve and enrich the Greater Cincinnati community through professional classical recitals, music education events such as Master Classes, and awarding of grants. Matinée Musicale presents an annual recital series, with each performance highlighting the finest national and international vocalists and instrumentalists, both up-and-coming as well as established, chosen by our musically active and knowledgeable membership.

A generous bequest from the Louise Dieterle Nippert Estate enables the Matinée Musicale Endowment Fund to offer limited financial assistance to a small number of 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profits in support of their outreach programs to promote music education.

Our 103rd Concert Season, which began in October 2015, has ended. Please visit our website often to view the outstanding musicians with their bios, photos and programs who will be presented to you, our audience, for the coming 104th concert season. 

Our final recital of the subscription season featured Nadine Sierra, soprano, on Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 3 p.m. at the Westwood First Presbyterian Church. Her program is on our website here. Janelle Gelfand (Cincinnati Enquirer music critic) wrote a glowing review of Nadine Sierra's concert on Sunday, May 1, 2016 here: https://janellesnotes.wordpress.com/…/nadine-sierra-delive…/

Nadine Sierra, youngest winner to date of both the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and the Marilyn Horne Foundation Vocal Competition, is hailed as one of the most promising emerging talents in the opera world today, already making a name for herself through her performances with top opera companies and symphony orchestras around the world. Fresh from her recent appearance on the PBS Emmy Award-winning Live From Lincoln Center broadcast of the Richard Tucker Music Foundation’s 2015 gala, performing duets with Andrea Bocelli and past Tucker Award-winner Stephen Costello, she made her Matinée Musicale debut on May 1st.

Recitals last approximately 70 minutes with no intermission. Meet and greet the musicians following each performance at our complimentary dessert reception.

Each concert artist's biography and program are posted on this website before every concert.
