0 Comments · Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Somehow, a sensational thing happens when hiking around the city on a historic walking tour: The modern world is always present but seemingly overlaid with a transparency from the past, the ghosts looking back at us while we search for them. At least that's been my experience when good storytelling is involved, as it is in the new Cincinnati Civil War Tour, happening Saturdays through Sept. 25.

At first glance, the Catacoustic Consort might appear disconnected from the modern world. But the music isn't an attempt at time travel so much as it is a method of exploring the sounds, emotions and people of another era — the chamber musicians of the 16th-18th centuries. See for yourself Sept. 18 at Walnut Hills Christian Church.

It's bush league (Frontier League, to be exact) baseball at its best as our Northern Kentucky team takes on the fellas from St. Louis (at least its suburb, Sauget, Ill.). Freedom games have a lot to offer in way of old-school baseball. Fans can get right down at field level and easily interact with players and there's plenty of fun for the kids during the creative intermissions.

Saturday's outdoor concert features adaptations of music by Tom Jones, The Turtles, The Beatles, The Monkees and The Fifth Dimension. Part of the KSO’s mission is to make Classical music more accessible by entwining it in a particular thematic context. Other performances have combined Classical music with silent film, zoo animals and Civil War re-enactments.
