2020 Symphony Gala

Thank you for joining us for our first virtual Symphony Gala Reimagined!

Reimagined to a virtual event with special entertainment by our Columbus Symphony musicians and solos by Concertmaster Joanna Frankel, and a heartwarming song by Tony Desare, our first ever virtual Gala was a success because of your support!

Because of your generosity and commitment to our Orchestra, we exceeded the event fundraising goal, which is critical to continue providing meaningful music to our community in new and exciting ways!

Thank you for always keeping the Columbus Symphony on your mind and in your heart. We are grateful for your support that ensures the Columbus Symphony is able to Inspire and Build a Strong Community Through Music!
