A long-standing commitment to the local arts saw a member of the Chamber's Board of Directors honored earlier this month. Edgar Smith, CEO of World Pac Paper, LLC was recognized as the primary sponsor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra's annual Classical Roots concert at Music Hall.
The event highlighted the sacrifices of African-Americans in our armed forces. The concert drew more than 3,000 and featured noted musician Branford Marsalis.
