Kids are Encouraged to Bring Their Favorite Toy to the Concert and Bring a New Toy to Donate to Nationwide Children’s Hospital

As part of the CSO’s Concerts for Kids series, CSO Music Director Rossen Milanov and the Columbus Symphony have teamed up with the acting troupe Really Inventive Stuff to present The Toy Symphony at the Ohio Theatre on Sunday, March 18. Professor Tympanium van Hammer zee Trumpeterclangor, a whimsical Austrian sound scientist who travels the world with his amazing acoustical laboratory, needs help to complete the melody of The Toy Symphony. Plus, meet the instruments of the orchestra with Benjamin Britten’s classic introduction, The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra. Children are encouraged to bring their favorite toy to the concert, and bring a new toy to donate to the Columbus Symphony’s The Toy Symphony Toy Drive benefiting Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Toys, games, or activity supplies can make a big difference to children and families spending time in the hospital. Nationwide Children’s Hospital collects these items year-round to distribute to patients in their care, and the Columbus Symphony would like to help stock them up with needed items through a special toy drive in conjunction with The Toy Symphony. While children are encouraged to bring their own favorite toy to enjoy the concert with, families are challenged to bring a new toy, game, or activity to donate to the Columbus Symphony’s The Toy Symphony Toy Drive benefiting Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Donated items must be new and in the original packaging. Donated stuffed animals must still have the original tags attached. A list of most-needed items and further guidelines on donation items can be found here: http://www.nationwidechildrens.org/wish-list-for-donations
