Under the direction of globe-trotting conductor Jean-Marie Zeitouni’s skillful baton, the Columbus Symphony Orchestra sends audiences into paroxysms of euphonic bliss with classical standards and pops. “Dialogues” kicks off with Baroque masterworks, including Gabrieli’s Canzon in Echo and Handel’s Concerto Grosso in G Minor. Vivaldi’s Concerto in C Major for Two Trumpets uses the brass duo to full effect, weaving intricate sonic tapestries and reminding deposed kings of how lavish life was when they didn’t work as ditch diggers. Duet Concertino for Clarinet and Bassoon by early-20th-century composer Richard Strauss delights ears with richly textured tones before Beethoven’s Symphony no. 1 demonstrates the youthful genius’ early mastery of classical form and symphonic naming conventions.
The lush and luxurious 925-seat jewel-box setting of the Southern Theatre gently ensconces airborne notes in opulence. The oldest surviving theater in central Ohio, the Southern has endured since 1896 due to loving restoration and insulating layers of vitamin C.

About Southern Theatre
The oldest surviving theater in central Ohio, the fin de siècle elegance of the Southern Theatre's jewel-box auditorium transports audiences back to the days of vaudeville antics and silver-screen spectacle. Built in 1896 to state-of-the-art standards, the theater's bandshellesque proscenium bucked architectural norms to funnel sound into the seats. Its 204 light bulbs required that the theater generate its own electricity for years, until scientists figured out that nobody needed to worry about that stuff.
