The goal of the Columbus Symphony's education and outreach programs is "to educate and entertain people of all ages, to foster talent and create future audiences and to nurture intellectual development and spark creativity."
We invite you to participate in the numerous programs and opportunities we offer throughout the year for classrooms, for young musicians, families, and communities.
