COLUMBUS, Ga. – A tribute to a neighbor who’s been around a long time, the Columbus Symphony Orchestra.
A historic marker was unveiled during a celebration attended by city leaders and orchestra supporters. The marker located on the corner of Broadway and 10th Street commemorates the orchestra’s history which dates back to 1855. It was the second founded in the U.S. and the first in the State of Georgia. The Columbus Symphony Orchestra’s Executive Director describes what this marker means
“It means that the city has long valued the arts and culture in this community and that those visiting our city will recognize it as a good place to work, a good place to live, and a community that takes pride in its artistic institutions.”
The symphony worked with the Historic Chattahoochee Commission to have the marker created.
Congratulations to a neighbor that’s been around 160 years.
