Benefit Concert Giving

The Columbus Symphony is dedicated to educating and entertaining people of all ages by fostering talent, creating future audiences, nurturing intellectual development, and sparking creativity in our K-12 students, families, and teachers. On February 8, 2020 our musicians and conductor generously donated their time and talent to perform without pay so that every dollar raised through the Benefit Concert could be used for our children’s program. Conducted by Andrés Lopera, the evening including performances by Urban Strings Columbus, a side-by-side by the Columbus Symphony Youth Orchestra, and a solo by pianist Gavin George.

Wonderous things happen when people come together for a worthy and deserving cause. The Columbus Symphony shares our heartfelt thanks to our Benefit Concert supporters.
