Celebrating Our Town in the Spring Concert

Join us for a FREE concert al fresco! Youth Orchestra of Greater Columbus presents Our Town, a celebration of our community. Guests are invited to bring blankets and chairs to the Illges Plaza outside of the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts, for their listening comfort. The Spring 2021 concert theme reflects a year full of challenge as well as opportunity for creativity and innovation. The repertoire includes movements from Wieniawski’s Violin Concerto No. 2 and Beethoven’s unmistakable 5th Symphony, and will conclude with “Our Town” by quintessential American composer Aaron Copland. Following social distancing guidelines between household groups and use of face coverings is strongly encouraged.

Shopping for masks and bell covers?

All students are required to wear masks at all times while in the Trade Center or Schwob School of Music. Additionally, woodwinds (except for flute) and brass are required to have bell covers for their instruments. If you would like a couple of suggestions of where to start, feel free to check out this Price Comparison for Bell Covers and Face Masks. Flutists, you will be looking for something like this.

YOGC has no formal or informal partnership with any of these companies. YOGC musicians are allowed to search elsewhere for comparable items or use ones given to them at school or another organization.
