Dame Evelyn Glennie with the CSO – November 2 & 3, Music Hall
If you watched the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics this summer, you likely saw the remarkable choreographed percussion which featured Dame Evelyn Glennie. Now you have the chance to witness Dame Glennie’s artistry live at Music Hall with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
Dame Glennie is a Scottish virtuosa percussionist. Glennie has been profoundly deaf since the age of 12, having started to lose her hearing from the age of 8. This does not inhibit her ability to perform at the international level. She regularly plays barefoot during both live performances and studio recordings in order to feel the music better.
Tickets are still available by calling the CSO Box Office at 513.381.3300 Plus, Friday night is also College Nite --for just $12, college students get prime seating at the concert, PLUS admission to the post-concert party in Corbett Tower with free appetizers, cash bar, live music from the Prohibitionists, and the opportunity to meet Dame Glennie.

Local’s Sports Bar & Grill at 19 E. Seventh Street partners with The Urology Group for a local Movember Campaign to increase awareness of men’s health during the month of November
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the United States and around the world. With their Mo's, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men's health issues.
Once registered at www.movember.com, men start the month clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, groom, trim and wax their way to the height of moustachery. They become walking, talking billboards for the month of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. In 2011, over 854,000 men around the world got on board, raising $126.3 million for men’s health causes.
During the month of November, $1 from every draft Bud Light purchased at Local’s Sports Bar & Grill will be donated to the Movember campaign. Health tips for men developed by physicians from The Urology Group will also be shared with patrons during the month.
Chilling facts: The average life expectancy for men is five years fewer than women (presently 77-years-old compared to 82). Perhaps that’s because 24% of men are less likely to go to the doctor compared to women. Prostate cancer is the leading cause of cancer in men, second only to lung cancer.

On November 16, hundreds of 5” x 7” works of art will be up for grabs once the curtains open at Secret ArtWorks: When Pigs Invade! These original small-scale masterpieces are donated by locally, nationally, and internationally acclaimed artists. These artworks can be yours – but here’s the secret: you won’t know the identity of the artist until you purchase the work!
Looking for something a little larger than 5” x 7”? This year we will be auctioning off some of the squealers from ArtWorks’ recent Big Pig Gig: Do-Re-Wee! This is your chance to own a piece of hog history.
All proceeds from the event will benefit ArtWorks, the award-winning nonprofit that creates innovative public art that enriches the Greater Cincinnati region, provides training and business courses to creative entrepreneurs, creates art for and with hospital patients and their families, and provides job opportunities for both teen and professional artists.
Ice Rink Construction has begun on Fountain Square. The rink opens on Thanksgiving Day.
