About our Theme:
To celebrate the “Year of the Woman”, our 2020 keynote speaker Thea Tjepkema will present
“Muses: The Women of Music Hall” highlighting the legacy of women performing in, creating
works of art for, and sustaining Cincinnati Music Hall. Ms. Tjepkema is a preservationist and
historian who brings history alive with her vivacious style. Her extensive research on Music
Hall helps guide renovations and serves as the basis for the popular Friends of Music Hall
Like the muses of history, singing, music, dance, comedy and tragedy, depicted in the
mural on Springer Auditorium’s ceiling above the chandelier, Music Hall has hosted artists,
musicians, divas, prima ballerinas, suffragists, business leaders, and patrons of the arts. Their
stories continue to stir the souls of all who enter. Some of these women might be forgotten,
but all were legends in their day. The talk will show how these trailblazing women placed the
crown upon the “Grand Lady” of the Queen City and kept it shining with grace and brilliance
for generations to come.
