Elevate artistic life in Columbus, bringing communities together through Chamber Music since 2015.
WATCH SEASON 5 VIDEO
We are an annual chamber music festival held annually in Columbus, Ohio every end of Summer in August. We hold concerts and events in museums, breweries, assisted living centers, veteran affairs hospitals, and many other unconventional spaces & locations.
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, supported by Greater Columbus Arts Council, Ohio Arts Council, and many other organizations and businesses throughout central Ohio
Our mission is to build community through world-class chamber music performances.
Our vision is for VIVO to serve as a catalyst for local artistic engagement by presenting innovative, community-oriented musical performances throughout central Ohio.
At the core of our belief is democratizing the arts and musical performances. We work with community partners to plan and bring to life initiatives and events that eliminates barriers in culture, economy, and physical boundaries.
There is no one-size fits all format to our events, our diverse format reflects our diverse audiences, who in turn shape and mold the many communities we serve.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we rely on the collaborative efforts of an entire community of supporters to be able to operate – much like chamber music.
Overcoming physical, economic, cultural and social barriers to arts participation lies at the heart of our mission to democratize classical music.
Despite the pandemic, VIVO is holding fast to our mission and are offering digital-only or distanced performances.
