2023 Symphony Gala

A new dawn. A new day. A new future of remarkable growth for our central Ohio region.
Together as an orchestra and a community, WE are reaching new heights of meaningful impact and a broadened reach to the children, families, and individuals we serve. 

Save the date for a spectacular evening celebrating the Columbus Symphony! The 2023 Symphony Gala is the not-to-be-missed event of the season as our orchestra is embarking on a new era of inspiration and impact for the future.

Join us as we honor OhioHealth and Kathy & Steve Markovich for their instrumental role in advancing the well-being of our community and exceptional support of symphonic music across central Ohio.

 This year’s Gala will be a summer soiree to remember hosted at the OhioHealth David P. Blom Administrative campus riverfront headquarters on Saturday, June 10, 2023.
