Events Description


We’re excited to present a new fall series of free weekly concerts that you can enjoy from home.

These performances begin small and gradually build toward the day when we can have all 66 musicians together onstage and, once it’s safe, start welcoming you back into the concert hall. We’ll premiere a new concert video each weekend with the number of musicians onstage increasing one performance at a time to include trios, quartets, and quintets, then larger ensembles.

Join us at home for the sounds of the season you know and love.
