The third annual VIVO Music Festival returns to Columbus with a series of immersive and imaginative chamber music events from August 21 to September 3. All performances are free with a suggested donation at the door. For its 2017 season, VIVO unites 18 young professional musicians, many of whom grew up in Columbus and now have international performing careers. This out-of-the-box collaborative classical music experience features concerts at popular local hangouts and gathering spots. VIVO is the brainchild of two Columbus native musicians, Siwoo Kim (violin, VIVO Music Festival Artistic Director, Westerville South High School ’08) and John Stulz (viola, VIVO Music Festival Artistic Director, Upper Arlington High School ’06). Kim was a member of Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble Connect, a fellowship program for the country’s finest young professional classical musicians. Stulz is one of 31 members of Ensemble InterContemporain (Paris), which is dedicated to performing and promoting contemporary chamber music. RSVP’s are recommended for all performances, as seating is limited. Visit vivofestival.org for information about how to RSVP.
