The Central Ohio Symphony, under the esteemed direction of Jaime Morales-Matos, is set to host a special concert event on Saturday, October 21, 2023. The concert will take place at 7:30 PM in the Gray Chapel at Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU), located at 61 S. Sandusky St., Delaware. This night promises to be an unforgettable experience for music lovers and community members alike.

Welcoming Leadership Through Melody

The Symphony aims to foster community engagement and celebrate new beginnings, making this event a must-attend for those invested in the local academic and cultural scenes.

A Diverse Musical Lineup

The evening’s program is as diverse as it is captivating. The concert will feature Jennifer Higdon’s “Cold Mountain Suite,” a contemporary composition that evokes the landscapes and emotions of its namesake. Following this, the audience will be treated to Miguel del Águila’s Violin Concerto, with virtuoso Guillermo Figueroa gracing the stage as the soloist.

The Grand Finale: The Organ Symphony

The concert will culminate with Camille Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No. 3, commonly known as “The Organ Symphony.” This piece is renowned for its grandeur and complexity, making it a fitting conclusion to an evening dedicated to community and culture.

Engaging the Community Through Music

The Central Ohio Symphony continues to live up to its motto of “Engaging the Community Through Music.” This special concert event is supported by the Ohio Arts Council, reinforcing the Symphony’s role in enriching the local arts scene.
