Columbus Symphony Chorus
Superbly balanced, well-rehearsed and confident.
The Columbus Symphony Chorus, beginning its 52nd season, continues to excel under the direction of Maestro Ronald J. Jenkins. Under Jenkins’ leadership for the last twenty-nine years the Chorus has grown both in the quality of its performances and in the diversity of its classical repertoire.
The 130-member Chorus, comprised entirely of volunteer singers from central Ohio, performs major works from Bach to Mahler. Past performances have included the requiems of Brahms, Verdi, Fauré, Mozart, and Duruflé; the Bach B Minor Mass; Mozart’s Grand Mass in C Minor and Coronation Mass; Haydn’s Lord Nelson and Harmonie Mass; Haydn'sCreation and the Seasons; works by Rossini, Orff, Walton, Britten, and Prokofiev; and concert performances of operas. The Chorus's annual Holiday Pops concerts have grown into one of the best-loved musical traditions in the central Ohio area, including three performances on the first weekend of December.
