Starting in 2012, the Columbus Symphony Orchestra will present Picnic with the Pops and Popcorn with the Pops on the Columbus Commons, leaving their summer home at Chemical Abstracts after 28 years.

The 2011 seasons of both series will remain on the lawn of the North Side business.

"We thank Chemical Abstracts for their 28 years of support and welcome the symphony to Columbusí exciting new green space, the Columbus Commons," Mayor Michael Coleman said in a statement.
