The thirtieth season debut for the Central Ohio Symphony was this past Saturday.  Gray Chapel is an excellent venue for music where the Klais Organ dominates the stage.  It was appropriate that Robert Griffith, an Ohio Wesleyan University emeritus faculty member, was the guest artist for Josef Rheingberger’s Organ Concerto in G Minor.   Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture and Symphony No. 1 were also played by a full, competent orchestra.  Near the end of the concert an individual had some type of medical issue that created a minor stir in the audience but didn’t affect the final movement on the stage.  This concert warmed our hearts before we exited to the coldest temperatures of the season.
