about
MUSIC
festival

VIVO Music Festival is an annual chamber music festival based in Columbus, Ohio. We present concerts and events in partnership with local institutions and businesses, including museums, breweries, assisted living centers, veteran affairs hospitals, and other community spaces.

VIVO is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and is supported by Greater Columbus Arts Council, Ohio Arts Council, and many other organizations and businesses throughout central Ohio.

OUR
mission

VIVO's mission is to build community through world-class chamber music performances.

Our vision is to serve as a catalyst for local artistic engagement by bringing innovative, community-oriented music performances directly to central Ohio’s diverse neighborhoods.

Volunteer / Partner
BUILD
community

At the core of VIVO's work is a belief in democratizing the arts. We work with community partners to present musical initiatives that transcend cultural, economic, and physical barriers.

There is no one-size-fits-all format to a VIVO event, and our diverse formats reflect our diverse audiences. Join us in continuing this work, and making world-class music available to all.
