Due to Mayor Ginther and Governor DeWine's recommendation that the downtown Columbus area be avoided this weekend, we have made the difficult decision to reschedule the Russian Winter Festival I concerts on January 15-16. Russian Winter I live recordings will take place on Sunday, January 24, with a matinee at 2pm and an evening performance at 6:30pm. If you have tickets, please email tickets@cbusarts.com to update your time preference. The Symphony is taking an abundance of caution for the safety of our patrons, musicians, volunteers, and staff. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, and we thank you for your patience and understanding. view details
