Central Ohio Symphony to ‘drum up’ Big Give


Staff Report



The Central Ohio Symphony is Drumming Up the Big Give on Tuesday, Oct. 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. for those wanting to donate during the Big Give, a 26-hour online fundraiser through the Columbus Foundation. People can access the Symphony’s computers to make donations.

Those making a donation can then participate in a short drum circle after 7 p.m. in celebration. The drum circle will be led 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 prorated basis of all the participating organizations, so a donor’s dollars go farther.”

Light refreshments will be served at the office and board members and volunteers will be available to meet and greet visitors.

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 five-county area.
