In five unique concerts performed over two weekends, audiences and performers alike experience a magnificent array of choral masterpieces and little known gems.

Established in 1873, the May Festival is directly responsible for the development of Cincinnati’s modern musical life. Music Hall, the city’s primary concert venue, was built specifically to house the Festival's performances in 1878, and the Orchestra, the fifth oldest in the United States, can trace its lineage back to this great tradition. The 2018-2019 season is Juanjo Mena’s second as Music Director of the May Festival. Previous directors have included, among others, Theodore Thomas, Max Rudolf, James Levine and James Conlon. Robert Porco is the Director of Choruses.

In addition to performing in the Festival, the May Festival Chorus and the May Festival Youth Chorus perform in the Orchestra’s and Cincinnati Pops’ seasons and in numerous local and regional outreach concerts.

The Vocal Arts Ensemble is a professional chamber choir that offers an annual subscription series of distinguished choral programs in notable architectural and acoustic venues throughout Greater Cincinnati. In addition, the ensemble presents outreach programs for children, youth and seniors, as well as recordings for local and national broadcasts. Achievements include two American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) Awards for "Adventuresome Programming of Contemporary Music," broadcasts on 220 National Public Radio stations through "The First Art," performances before conventions of the American Choral Directors Association in San Antonio and Chicago and appearances with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and in the May Festival.
