The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is between seasons and the summer break provides some musicians a chance to explore other interests. A quartet from the CSO presents works in pottery, painting and photography at the 5th Street Gallery. Violinists Drake Ash and Anna Reider, cellist Dan Culnan and bassist Matthew Zory each have mastered another form of creative expression.
Both music and painting feed the soul, Reider says, “The biggest difference is that when the last notes of the piece are gone, they are gone. Yet with a painting, you have something to revisit and re-live.”
Opening reception 6-9 p.m. Friday. Through Aug. 2. Free. 55 W. Fifth St., Downtown, 5thstreetgallery.com.
