Since 1912 Matinée Musicale Cincinnati has presented recitals by instrumentalists and singers on their way to illustrious careers. Legendary pianist Arthur Rubinstein performed at the Netherland Hotel’s Hall of Mirrors in 1938. In 1955, 21-year-old Van Cliburn performed for Cincinnatians in a Matinée Musicale recital, three years before he won the International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow. Coloratura soprano Beverly Sills sang in Cincinnati in 1969, the same year she debuted at Milan’s renowned La Scala opera house.
