Central Ohio Symphony to “Drum Up” the Big Give

Staff Report

The Central Ohio Symphony is Drumming Up the Big Give on this coming Tuesday evening, October 10, at the Symphony office, located at 24 E. Winter Street in downtown Delaware next to the Strand Theatre. The office will be open from 6 to 8 p.m. where those wanting to donate during the Big Give, a 26 hour online fundraiser through the Columbus Foundation, can do so on the Symphony’s computers. Those making a donation can then participate in a short drum circle after 7 p.m. in celebration. The drum circle will be lead by Executive Director Warren Hyer, who directs the Symphony’s acclaimed Reconnecting drumming program.

“This will be a quick and easy way to make a donation through the Big Give and have fun doing it,” said Hyer. “Every dollar donated through the Big Give is amplified by the Columbus Foundation on a pro rate basis of all the participating organizations, so a donor’s dollars go farther.”

There will be light refreshments at the office and board members and volunteers to meet and greet.

The Central Ohio Symphony brings music to more than 17,000 audience members every season. The symphony also has engagement programming in education, health care, the courts and with many agencies in a 5-county area.
