VIVO Music Festival to showcase classic works from past and present

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

After two years of pandemic-era versions of the annual chamber music festival — in 2020, the festival went entirely virtual, and in 2021, socially distanced outdoor programming was included — this year’s edition, set for Aug. 31-4 September, it’s very much a return to normalcy.

The festival will return to a closed format, with concerts set in venues used by the festival in the past, including the Columbus Museum of Art and the Southern Theater. And no virtual program is expected.

“There is 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.
