About the Columbus Symphony Orchestra
Founded in 1922 by Chester Kitzinger, the Columbus Symphony Orchestra is the oldest symphony
orchestra in the state of Indiana. The premiere performance of the CSO was May 17, 1923 at the Crump
The orchestra continued through World War II even though many musicians were away in the armed
forces. During the 60s, Mr. Kitzinger formed the Singing Strings, a smaller group that performed for art
shows, fundraisers, weddings, and receptions. The full orchestra was reorganized as Columbus Pro
Musica in 1970 while the Columbus Symphony Orchestra retained its identity and continued as a
volunteer orchestra. Shortly after the reorganization, Mr. Kitzinger was named Conductor Emeritus and
Dale Spurlock became Music Director.
Arkady Orlovsky became Music Director during the 1992-93 season. In 1997, celebrating its 75th season,
the CSO returned to the Crump Theater where its inaugural concert was held. After eighteen years as
Music Director, Arkady Orlovsky retired.
In 2010, Roger Kalia was named the Columbus Symphony Orchestra’s fourth music director, serving
through the 2013-2014 season. The Columbus Symphony Orchestra’s close relationship to the Indiana
University Jacobs School of Music provided the orchestra with an extremely capable conductor,
musician, and valued partner in Hao-An Henry Cheng.
In 2015, the CSO appointed Josh Aerie as its music director. More information at: http://csoindiana.org/
