With all of the hiatuses this blog goes on, it might seem like either a) nothing goes on here in Cincinnati; or b) I don't get out much. While (b) is often true, (a) is not. 2006 has been a pretty decent year for classical concerts in Cincinnati (product-wise, that is; I'm in no position to judge the general health of the various institutions). I've been to some really excellent concerts - with new music well represented on the programs - and I've had to miss out on a ton more. So by way of making up for lost blogs, watch this space for an incomplete list of good stuff that I've attended this year.
