We're bringing you new fall performances online!

We're excited to present a new fall series of free 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.

Tickets are free, but we're asking you to register in advance to receive the concert link and your unique access code. Concerts will remain available to watch for 30 days after the premiere date.

We're sharing concert details one month at a time to allow for flexibility as guidelines related to COVID-19 evolve.
