Vivo Music Festival to showcase classical works of the past and present

VIVO Music Festival is back – and it promises to sound like it did before the pandemic.

After two pandemic-era editions of the annual chamber music festival — in 2020, the festival went all-virtual, and in 2021, a socially distanced outdoor event was included — this year’s edition, set for Aug. 31 to Sept. 4. Most are back to normal.

The festival will return to an all-indoor format, with concerts set at venues used by the festival in the past, including the Columbus Museum of Art and the Southern Theater. And no virtual programming is expected.

“There’s no substitute for live sound,” said festival co-founder Siwoo Kim, a 33-year-old violinist who spent his teenage years in Westerville and now lives in New York City.
