In celebration of National Pie Day, which is this Friday, January 23, the Central Ohio Symphony will be handing out slices of homemade apple pie to anyone who comes to the Symphony office that day. These are well known Nelson Apple pies! There are 28 of them fresh baked on Thursday! Apples provided by Buehler’s.
The price for this sweet treat? Absolutely NOTHING!
“We thought this would be a fun way to celebrate the day,” said Warren W. Hyer. Executive Director of the Symphony. “And it’s a way for people to visit our offices and hear about our upcoming concerts and events. We did this last year and it was very popular.”
The Symphony’s next performance will be Sunday, March 8, at 3:00 p.m. at Gray Chapel, when the orchestra will perform Tchaikovsky’s 4th Symphony, Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto with guest artist Amy Oshiro of the Philadelphia Orchestra and the World Premiere of “Reconnecting” by Ben Goldberg about the Symphony’s groundbreaking therapeutic drumming program in the Delaware County Courts. More than 700 tickets have already been sold.
Tickets will also be available for the ROCK THE SYMPHONY II, mind-blowing trivia fundraiser on February 21 at Columbus State Community College Delaware Campus.
The Symphony office is located at 24 E. Winter Street, right next to the Strand Theatre in downtown Delaware. Staff and volunteers will be serving pie from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30, “or until the pie runs out,” added Hyer.
