Saying goodbye to SymphonySTRONG

Email sent to the membership of the now-shutdown organization of SymphonySTRONG:

Following last night's SOLD OUT, Mozart Concert, Symphony Strong is joining with other groups working to support the effort to maintain and grow our symphony. The new organization will be called Symphony Columbus, and its website is Symphony Columbus has a 501(c)3 Foundation that will be called "Save the Symphony." Your continued support is very important in the effort to maintain (in Columbus) the wonderful group of musicians who make up the orchestra. You can keep up to date on all the activities by going to

CSO management may have cancelled the fall season, but we are going to have plenty of music for you to enjoy. The next major concert will be on Saturday, July 26th at Vets Memorial, and Maestro Alessandro Siciliani will conduct. Following this event, we will have a third Vets Memorial on August 2nd with Maestro Junichi Hirokami conducting and The Ohio State University Marching Band participating.

Looking ahead in August, we will have a unique performance in a unique venue. Musicians of the orchestra will perform for the first time in a wonderful, natural amphitheater - Ash Cave at Hocking Hills. This beautiful, natural wonder will be the backdrop for a concert on August 17th.

Complete details can be found on the website, along with some very interesting breaking news and comments from other supporters. Please bookmark or add to your favorites.

The old website will be taken down shortly.

Show your support with one of the Symphony Columbus tee shirts, available at the concerts

Best regards,
Jim Mitchell

Many thanks to the volunteers of the SymphonySTRONG organization for their help and dedication!
