This season’s theme – Adventures in Great Music – will surely excite and captivate audiences of all ages and backgrounds. There’s something for everyone this season, starting with our spooky Halloween-themed concert on October 16: “Boo! Things that Go Bump in the Orchestra” with music by Mussorgksy (Night on Bald Mountain) and others. The adventure continues throughout the season with new and familiar selections from Tchaikovsky, Wagner, Dvorak, and others.

Additionally, the CSO will be hosting its first annual Youth Concerto Competition, where area youth will audition for the opportunity to perform with the Columbus Symphony at our March 2017 concert: Hometown Talent. More details to come.
