Columbus All City Orchestra


Under the direction of Andrés Lopera, this ensemble provides a full-orchestra experience exclusively for high school students enrolled in the Columbus City School district. Rehearsals are held weekly, beginning in December and culminating with a concert on March 10, 2019 at the Lincoln Theatre.

In its thirteenth year, this orchestra is composed of high school musicians from various Columbus City Schools who rehearse with Andrés Lopera December through March at Ft. Hayes high school. The program is tuition free for the students and has been presented by Safelite AutoGlass with additional funding by the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation and the Woodhull Fund of The Columbus Foundation.
