CSO ‘Happy Hour’ Conductor Rossen Milanov in Studio with Boyce
The Columbus Symphony invites you to enjoy happy hour with them this evening at the Ohio Theater.

The doors of the Ohio Theater open this evening at 5:30 p.m. for free appetizers and special drink prices, followed by a conversation between Classical 101′s Christopher Purdy and conductor Rossen Milanov just prior to the free concert.
