CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

There are some big changes coming for the popular concert and community festival Lumenocity.

Lumenocity will return for a fourth consecutive and final year this summer. However, the event will not be held at Washington Park in Over-The-Rhine. The high-tech symphonic light spectacle will be moving indoors. 

Lumenocity: Re-imagine will take place Aug 5-7, 2016 at the Taft Theater.

The concert will move indoors because their former canvas, historic Music Hall, will be under renovation starting in summer 2016.

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra promises the event will be a "fully immersive experience" unlike anything you've seen before. 

The 50-minute performances will feature the Orchestra as both the CSO and the Pops, and Louis Langrée and John Morris Russell will share the conducting podium.

There will be eight performances over the three-day period to maximize opportunities to experience the event.

Tickets for Lumenocity will go on sale to the general public beginning July 5. Tickets will be $12 (partial view) or $20 (full view).  Everyone is required to have a ticket to enter, including children. 

Much like the Lumenocity Village in years past, there will be a free Block Party outside the Taft Theatre during the performances.

Exact hours and activities of the Block Party are to be announced.

Lumenocity has seen changes each year since it debuted in 2013.  It has has grown from a two day free event to a Cincinnati staple that has sold out tickets within minutes.
