The Columbus Symphony and the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department teamed up to present five free community concerts during the first week of August. Held at local community centers and parks throughout the region, residents came out in droves to hear the musicians perform family-friendly music that ranged from symphonic to popular hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s and also tunes made famous via blockbuster movies. Seen here enjoying the symphony’s rendition of the aptly named “Dancing Queen” by the Swedish pop band ABBA is westside resident Kathy Clay, who was accompanied by Associate Conductor Andres Lopera during the Aug. 4 concert at Westgate Park. Clay said she had a great time at the concert and it was not just because she got to dance with the conductor. “That was just a bonus,” she said. “They are a terrific ensemble and I am so glad that they came out here to the westside to host a concert for the community.”
