In the wake of last week’s post examining how the coronavirus outbreak is impacting arts and culture organizations, there are some instances of turning lemons into lemonade.
The 2/6/2020 edition of the Boston Globe highlights how the Boston Symphony is redirecting the time it would have been on tour in China to a series of community based events.
…players are heading out into the community for a series of pop-up chamber concerts. The full orchestra also will offer a free “Concert for Our City” at Symphony Hall Feb. 16 led by BSO youth and family concerts conductor Thomas Wilkins.
It’s good to see the administration and musicians figure out how best to make use of their time. It reminds me of the free events the Nashville Symphony organized in the wake of the massive flooding from 2010.
