Classical Revolution Cincinnati normally holds events every second Sunday.









Sunday 8/14 @ 8:00 p.m.--The Loon ($5 Donation Suggested)
We at Classical Revolution Cincinnati value variety, and our August show at The Loon features four very unique acts!


Though they are are originally from Florida and Iowa respectively, Sarah Folsom and Matthew

Umphreys (The Queen City Cabaret) loved Cincinnati so much they decided to stick around after

graduating and call it home. Queen City Cabaret is a celebration of everything they love about

Cincy and its music scene—the amazing musical history, the culture, the diversity, and--most

importantly--the people.


Every concert they produce has a Queen City connection, be it the music performed or the artists

on the stage. If you love vintage pop, jazz, rock, musical theatre, or even just great stories and

good drinks, they’d love to have you join us on our musical adventure.
