While I consider myself a fan of the arts, I have no extensive knowledge of one art form in particular. Rather, I like to be inspired, constantly stimulated and surrounded by beauty.
I recently discovered that the Columbus Symphony provides all three of these in one neat little package.
I attended opening night back in January. Part of the performance focused on the planets of the solar system and was narrated by former astronaut and Senator John Glenn, whose authenticity made a genuine connection with the audience. We watched the story of each planet unfold, both musically and visually, as pictures of planets flashed across a large screen in perfect unison with Gustva Holst's The Planets.
It was my first symphony experience, and I'm glad to say I'll be back again. Currently, the Columbus Symphony is featuring a variety of shows ranging from the works of Mozart to a collection of fairytale favorites. You can check their calendar here for upcoming performances taking place during selected weekends through May.
