Musicians and attendees alike celebrated big and inspired even bigger at The Dawn of inspiration, the Columbus Symphony Gala held on Saturday, June 10, 2023, at the OhioHealth David P. Blom Administrative campus riverfront headquarters. Led by event co-chairs Amy Shore and Betsy Schumacher as well as an Honorary Committee of volunteers and supporters, the Gala honored OhioHealth with Kathy and Steve Markovich for their extraordinary role in advancing the well-being of the community and their exceptional support of symphonic music across central Ohio. Concertmaster Joanna Frankel, Columbus Symphony Musicians, and Columbus native Broadway star Tamika Lawrence with the Worship and Praise Chorale treated attendees to a night of inspiring musical performances, and guests enjoyed dinner curated by Kamal Boulos of The Refectory and executed by Cameron Mitchell Premier Events as well as a live auction featuring items from private Blue Jackets suites to exclusive musical recitals to support the Symphony’s mission of inspiring and building a strong community through music.
