This past Sunday the Central Ohio Symphony held its Holiday Concerts in Gray Chapel on the campus of Ohio Wesleyan University.  The Young Strings, students from area high schools, and Kinderchor, a children’s choir program connected to Otterbein College, participated, too.  Although about a dozen pieces of music were performed, the concert only lasted a little more than an hour.  The Pizzacato Polka gave all of the stringed instruments a plucking workout.  Several pieces involved different percussion of all sizes, shapes, and sounds.  The program included a couple of sing-along favorites as well as audience clapping as part of the Radestzky March.  Organist Sally Casto did a fine job playing selections during some of the group transitions on the stage.  The audience was dominated by gray hairs while a few young voices let us know of their presence. The Symphony’s music created a positive mood for the season.  Happy Holidays!
