The Columbus Symphony presented free outdoor concerts throughout Central Ohio in September 2020 due to the closure of concert halls because of the pandemic.

Musical performances have been hit particularly hard by COVID-19. Venues are closed for the foreseeable future and many groups have had to lay off performers.

The Columbus Symphony has managed to keep all of its full-time staff and even managed a few concerts this fall with more planned for the holidays.

We discuss how orchestras are adapting to the pandemic.

Take a look at the Columbus Symphony's Community Concert Series from the fall in this segment from Broad & High on WOSU TV.
