CSO “Take Back Friday”

For most, Black Friday means frantic shoppers, parking lot standoffs, and long lines at Best Buy. If that’s not your cup of tea, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is hosting a series of concerts at Music Hall called “Take Back Friday” for those who’d rather end the holiday with classical music than bargain hunting. Beginning Friday night at 8 p.m., the concerts will feature reprises of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris, as well as Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite and Piano Concert for the Left Hand, all led by Music Director Louis Langrée and pianist Kirill Gerstein.

Tickets starting at $12, November 29-30, 8 p.m., Music Hall, 1241 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine (513) 381-3300, cincinnatisymphony.org
