The CSO’s annual New Year’s Eve celebration has a pronounced French accent, beginning with a concert in Music Hall featuring “La Vie en Rose,” music from Gigi, La Bohème and possibly the best-known French melody outside of La Marseillaise, Offenbach’s “Le Galop Infernale,” better known as the can-can.

French-Canadian soprano Natalie Choquette, a renowned cabaret and concert singer, shares the stage with singers and dancers, and with John Morris Russell on the podium, who knows what else will transpire? If you really want to kick up your heels, a New Year’s Eve Ball follows upstairs in Music Hall’s Ballroom, with dinner and dancing to the music of Hank Mautner and the Swing Heritage Orchestra. Prices vary. 7:30 p.m. Dec. 31. Music Hall, 1241 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine. 513-381-3300, cincinnatisymphony.org.
