Violinist Elena Urioste joins Columbus Symphony Orchestra
As a young classical musician, Elena Urioste said she feels a responsibility to communicate her passion for the music and her belief in its value to audiences of all types. Artists, Urioste said, are not only responsible for sharing their art but also participating in the broader social dialogue via their art. The violinist will perform Tchaikovsky's "Violin Concerto in D major" with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra as part of this weekend's Russian Winter Festival, which also features music by Prokofiev and Stravinsky.Singer-songwriter Nathan Bell at the Red Door Tavern "am/becoming" exhibition reception at 934 Gallery "Pathways and Intersections" reception at CAC Dom Deshawn presents "The Nightcap" "A Monster Calls" opens in theaters Adria Shahid at Natalie's Carnage Bodybagg at the Newport Music Hall

Abbey of the Cardinal Sins January General Membership Meeting
These "queer nuns" have answered the call to serve. Having first manifested at the city's Highball Halloween costume party in 2014, The Abbey of the Cardinal Sins currently has five ordained members and several other active participants. They serve the community by hosting events like the "Columbus Bitch Trials" - a roast of a local drag queen - and the "Project Nunway" fashion show to raise money for charities such as Project Open Hand and the OSU Star House. They also pass out condoms and educate the public on the Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) HIV-prevention pill.
