The Columbus Symphony Orchestra is going “Baroque” for Valentine’s Day as we present our Legacy Hall Series concert, “Baroque Suites & Sweets” on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 7:30 PM at the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts. Hear the best music of the two greatest Baroque composers, Bach and Handel, and fulfill your Valentine’s Day obligations all in one evening. To make the night “sweeter”, enjoy FREE champagne and delicious desserts at intermission sponsored by Kilwin’s.

“It is always exciting when we can celebrate Valentine’s Day with the CSO. More so this year as we celebrate with a special chamber orchestra concert. It is not often that you get to hear this style of music performed by a local ensemble,” says Eric M. Thomas, CSO Executive Director.
