After canceling the opening Masterworks concerts for the 2020-21 season due to the pandemic, the Columbus Symphony today invited Masterworks ticketholders to attend live performances of four new concerts at the Ohio Theatre. Conducted by CSO Music Director Rossen Milanov and performed with a full, socially distanced orchestra in concert dress, these performances will also be recorded and published on the Columbus Symphony web site for public viewing approximately one week following each concert.
Anyone currently holding a ticket to any 2020-21 Masterworks concert, either subscription ticket or single ticket, and would like to attend one or more of the new, live performances should send an email to [email protected] with the date of the concert requested and number of tickets needed. Per the Governor’s order, capacities will be limited to 300 per concert and patrons will be asked to follow safety protocols including socially distanced seating and mandatory face coverings. Seats will be pre-assigned and patrons’ regular seats may not be available.
The recordings will be made available on the CSO web site approximately one week following each concert and can be viewed free of charge.
The live performances and recording releases are scheduled as follows:
