Cascade Symphony's opening night to be streamed Oct. 26
Last updated 10/27/2020 at 4:59pm
Edmonds-based Cascade Symphony Orchestra will have a "Virtual Opening Night" concert 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26.
The online performance replaces the first of two remaining 2020 concerts – canceled due to the pandemic – that would have been held at the CSO's regular venue, the Edmonds Center for the Arts.
The free concert is supported by the orchestra's donors. To donate, go to http://www.cascadesymphony.org/donate/.
The symphony's music director, Michael Miropolsky, will curate this and future online events.
"Since 'normal' live concerts are not possible at this time, concert organizations all over the world are working to find new ways to continue making and sharing music," said Miropolsky.
"The majority are making digital content available to their patrons for streaming. For now, we find it is the only way as well, though our streaming will differ from what other orchestras are doing. We wanted to surprise you."
"We're excited to share chamber music performances by our musicians, video recordings from treasured past performances, and music from our guest soloists, pianists August Baik and Nicole Wang," said Rose Gear, CSO executive director, in describing the Oct. 26 concert.
"We feel very fortunate to have August and Nicole perform, as they were the originally scheduled opening night soloists before the concert became virtual due to the pandemic."
