For the first time ever the Columbus Symphony will perform on the Stuart’s Opera House stage! The Columbus Symphony intends to collaborate with Stuart’s Opera House to present an orchestral concert and a series of educational outreach events in Nelsonville and the surrounding communities. This performance will be conducted by the acclaimed Music Director of the Columbus Symphony, Rossen Milanov and will feature an orchestra of 42 including strings, flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, horns, trumpets, and timpani. The program will be a combination of light classics and pops, creating an approachable event for all members of the community, including works from Beethoven, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Strauss, and Copland. This event is sponsored in part by Ohio Arts Council and Ohio University Performing Arts & Concert Series.
Founded in 1951, the Columbus Symphony is the longest-running, professional symphony in central Ohio. Through an array of innovative artistic, educational, and community outreach programming, the Columbus Symphony is reaching an expanding, more diverse audience each year. This season, the Columbus Symphony will share classical music with more than 175,000 people in central Ohio through concerts, radio broadcasts, and special programming.
