    Moving to Cincinnati

    So i thought I was moving to Savannah and now at the last minute that has changed to Cincinnati, OH. It is probably a better move as far as chances to play are concerned since it is much larger than Savannah.
    I was wondering if there were any TM'ers in Cincinnati?
    It looks like I will be moving there in early June.
    Thanks!

    I was thinking the same thing. At least the orchestra's great. Everytime I've played in that city I've felt very sad for the culture. That city is rough. Even Orchestra Hall is in a bad part of town.

    The symphony is great, especially if Pavo Jarvi can stay out of jail...
    Oh well. I just hope that I can find some people to play with there. I don't really know how start getting things going in a new city.

    Hook up with Mike Wade and tell him I sent you. go to sessions, take some lessons, be willing to play anything... I'm sure there's work for solid players in any town.

    Thanks,
    I'll be sure to look him up. I heard him play 7 or 8 years ago, I didn't know that he was still in the Cincinnati area.

    I played with him in a band in Cleveland. I think he still is in town.

    I used to live in Cincinnati, the riverfront is nice, it's got a sort of average downtown otherwise. Enjoyed the symphony. Wasn't playing when I was there, so don't know the trumpet scene. Really liked the Boathouse ribs until I moved to Kansas City, now they don't compare.

    My sister lived in Sharonville so I know a little about the place.
    You might look into the north end near the roller coaster park. It is called Kings Island. They hire summer musicians. The north end gets you closer to the rest of Ohio for gigs. Dayton is close and there is an Air Force Band stationed there.

    The School for performing arts is the talent center. I saw Fiddler on the Roof and it was first class. Cincinnati Conservatory of Music is still high quality. It got Al Hirt a job.

    Cincinnati opera is a decent venue.

    For night life you would want to live on the Kentucky side. Jerry Springer was mayor of Cincinnati and got caught on the Kentucky side. After that he was no longer mayor. The rest is history.

    King's Island, that's the amusement park, it's a good park for a city that size.

    We lived there during Jerry's post-mayoral days, and he was the top news anchor in town. Even when we didn't watch the news we'd switch it on at the end, to catch the commentaries that he did. It's hard to believe he's fallen so far.
