Cincinnati welcomes Louis Langrée in his first concert as Music Director Designate! Franck’s Symphony in D Minor, a treasure-trove of rich and familiar melodies, is a highlight of this colorful, all-French program.

A bonafide living legend and great guitar player who has recorded songs that have stood the test of time — standards such as “By The Time I Get To Phoenix” and “Wichita Lineman” with a career that spans fifty-plus years and fans that cross generational and international lines. Ghost On the Canvas, which was released in the Fall of 2011 on the Sundog Records’ label, is his current album. Glen has said it will be his final album. In summer of 2011, Glen was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease and he believes his current tour to be his last.

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! This year they will be auctioning off some of the squealers from ArtWorks’ recent Big Pig Gig: Do-Re-Wee! 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. http://artworkscincinnati.org
