In Wednesday’s (6/30) Delaware News (Ohio), Rasha Aly writes, “The Central Ohio Symphony is doing something a little bit different this year as it celebrates its 25th Independence Day performance in Delaware. During the concert Sunday, July 4, the symphony will hold the world premieres of two musical works. ‘It will be a special way for the community to come together and celebrate,’ said Warren Hyer, executive director of the symphony. The concert is set for 8 p.m. July 4 on the Phillips Glen lawn, located behind Gray Chapel on the main campus of Ohio Wesleyan University, a block south of downtown Delaware. This year, the symphony will play American Frontier by Brooklyn native Ben Goldberg, and a new rendition of Beautiful Ohio by Danny Clay, a 2007 graduate of Buckeye Valley High School. … Goldberg’s music has been heard on America’s Most Wanted, Animal Planet and the History Channel. For two years, CNN in Japan also played his music. However, he said, this weekend’s concert will be the first time he has heard his music played live by a symphony.”
