Pop That

A perfect way to spend an evening outdoors with good music, food, family and friends can be found by attending the Columbus Symphony’s Picnic with the Pops concert series on the lawn at Chemical Abstracts near The Ohio State campus.

This year’s concert series will run June 18 through July 30 and feature some of the most unique and diverse acts ever. In addition, the Popcorn Pops will run June 24 through July 22 and feature three special family concerts recommended for children ages 3-12.

Of course, the favorites are back, such as Patriotic Pops and The Ohio State University Marching Band; however, this year you’ll also have the opportunity to enjoy Chris Botti, The Spinners, The Music of Michael Jackson, and Daryl Stuermer of Genesis with Phil Collins

Tickets to Picnic with the Pops are $20 for adults and $8 for children ages 3-14 if purchased in advance by phone at (614) 228-8600, online at www.PicnicWithThePops.com, in person at the Ohio Theatre Ticket Office (39 E. State St.), or at the gate.
