The Cascade Symphony Orchestra has canceled the remainder of its 2020-21 season at the Edmonds Center for the Arts due to heightened and unpredictable government restrictions recently put into place for public gatherings due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The orchestra will continue to offer concerts online, with each new musical presentation debuting on the dates and times when the CSO would have been performing live and in-person.
The remaining concert dates are Jan. 11, March 8, and May 3, each with the virtual curtain rise at 7:30 p.m.
"The most important thing is that our members, as well as our patrons, are safe," said Rose Gear, Cascade Symphony executive director.
"Although our members cannot safely gather in person for rehearsals and concerts, we are so pleased to continue our mission of nourishing the community with music, with the help of technology."
Like the first two concerts of the season presented in late October and early December, the upcoming virtual performances are being presented free, thanks to the generosity of orchestra donors. The upcoming virtual musicales will feature encore performances held in recent years, along with stories from orchestra members.
Cellist Amos Yang will be the featured performer for January's presentation curated by the symphony's music director Michael Miropolsky.
"Although it has been almost one full year since we were last able to perform live for our loyal friends and patrons, we still feel a personal connection to them," Miropolsky said. "We miss seeing them, but I'm proud that we can still entertain through our past performances, while sharing personal stories from members of our orchestra."
