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. The orchestra unwraps the shrink wrap on its new home at the historic Southern Theatre with the “String Summit,” a showcase of familiar 20th-century masterpieces brimming with bafflingly intricate arrangements. Audiences cower in amazement as the symphony takes on Bartok’s Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta, a famously unnerving construction that ratcheted the slapstick tension of the film farce The Shining, and tears swell in ears as Barber’s elegant Adagio for Strings unearths memories of the movie Platoon. Placing the sonic cherry atop of the evening, celebrated violinist Rachel Barton Pine steps in to share her Stradivari-shaming skills on Bernstein’s Serenade, a lively celebration of non-platonic love based on Plato’s Symposium.

This special concert marks a new era for the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, as it transplants from the elegant confines of the Ohio Theatre into the lush and luxurious 925-seat jewel-box setting of the Southern Theatre. The oldest surviving theater in central Ohio, the Southern has endured since 1896 due to loving restoration and insulating layers of vitamin C. For this special inauguration, the orchestra introduces a slew of new informal format changes, including audience interactions, anecdotes and explanations from Jean-Marie, and a semicasual dress code that allows fans to savor classical music without being distracted by popcorn-filled top hats.

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.
