Benefit Concert - Cares About Kids: Virtual Benefit for the Children of Central Ohio

Join us for the 2021 Columbus Symphony Cares About Kids: Virtual Benefit for the Children of Central Ohio March 8-13 at columbussymphony.com!

In lieu of its annual, in-person benefit concert, the Columbus Symphony will offer the 2021 Columbus Symphony Cares About Kids Virtual Benefit, an online, virtual program that will be available at www.ColumbusSymphony.com March 8-13. Proceeds from this extraordinary, week-long event will directly support the CSO’s ongoing music education programs that are on-track to reach nearly 40,000 central Ohio children in the 2020-21 season.

Columbus City Council President Shannon Hardin will emcee the 45-minute program that will feature a remarkable presentation of J.S. Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins performed by the CSO’s 2020 Young Musicians Competition winner Cecilia Martin, Jack and Joan George Concertmaster Chair Joanna Frankel, and Reinberger Foundation Principal Piano Chair Caroline Hong. In addition, Music Director Rossen Milanov and the musicians of the CSO will dedicate a special performance of George Walker's Serenade for Strings to the children of central Ohio. The virtual benefit will also include testimonies from children, teachers, community members, and civic leaders that have been impacted by the CSO’s education and outreach efforts.

With your support, this year the Symphony will make it possible to spark creativity, find inspiration, and nurture intellectual development for nearly 40,000 children through the COVID-19 crisis.
