CINCINNATI — The arts were on display Sunday, but so was the venue itself as Music Hall hosted the Artswave Sampler. The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the May Festival Chorus were among the main draws for patrons to sample, but the landmark building was also a draw as it will soon close for the summer for renovations. Photographer Dave Schmidt captured photos of one of the city's most beloved venues for WCPO Insiders.

Schmidt is the photographer for Cincygram. That's his incredibly popular Instagram handle. He has more than 24,000 followers on Instagram, where he focuses on the beauty this region has to offer.
