Columbus Symphony Orchestra (GA)
George Del Gobbo begins his 27th season as the Columbus Symphony Orchestra’s Music Director and Conductor. During this time the orchestra has demonstrated unprecedented artistic growth. Del Gobbo began his musical education on the violin at age 12. An interest in conducting soon followed and he pursued both disciplines throughout his training at the Eastman School of Music and the Catholic University of America. The most profound influence on his musical thinking came during the time he spent as a student of Maestro Franco Ferrara at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome and the Accademia Chigiana in Siena, Italy.
What makes this business unique? Long recognized as one of the southeast’s finest.
- “To perpetuate the orchestral tradition through the presentation of creative programs performed at the highest possible level of artistic quality, to develop audience enthusiasm, to educate future generations of concert goers and to contribute to the enjoyment and evolution of the art of symphonic music.”
