Griset Damas by Stephen Pariser

In a concert inspired by adventure and Spanish exoticism, the Columbus Symphony will perform the Spanish Flamenco Festival at the newly renovated Palace Theatre on March 1 and 2. The auditorium of the 1926 historic venue received a six-month, $2.5 million facelift, and was reopened to the public in November 2018. Guest conducted by John Axelrod, musical director of the Royal Seville Symphony Orchestra, the program will feature local flamenco star Griset Damas and the Flamenco Company of Columbus. The full program includes Turina’s Danzas fantasticas, Falla’s La Vida Breve: Danse Espagnole No. 1, and concludes with the enchanting, rhythmic vitality of Dvořák’s richly melodic New World Symphony (Symphony No. 9).

The Columbus Symphony presents the Spanish Flamenco Festival: From Seville to the New World at the Palace Theatre (34 W. Broad St.) on Friday and Saturday, March 1 and 2, at 8pm. Tickets start at $10 and can be purchased in-person at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), online at www.columbussymphony.com, or by phone at (614) 469-0939 or (800) 745-3000. The CAPA Ticket Center will also be open two hours prior to each performance.

Prelude – Patrons are invited to attend a 30-minute, pre-concert discussion with John Axelrod and Ohio Dominican University Professor of English Jeremy Glazier.

Postlude – Directly following the performance, patrons may enjoy a flamenco demonstration by featured dancer Griset Damas and a sangria tasting.
