2023 CSO Cares About Kids Benefit Concert: March 30, 2023

This year marks the 5th anniversary of the Columbus Symphony’s annual Benefit for music education programs with the 2023 Columbus Symphony Cares About Kids: Shine Bright event!

The annual Benefit returned to an in-person performance on March 30, 2023, to support meaningful music education programs, in addition to a weeklong event of musician outreach to young people in the community.

Thank you for joining us for an intimate and exclusive evening of inspirational chamber music for the celebratory Benefit Concert, “Joanna & Friends” at the historic Municipal Light Plant, curated by CSO concertmaster Joanna Frankel.

Because of your support, the Symphony will ensure that music inspires, sparks creativity, and nurtures intellectual development for over 70,000 children across central Ohio.
