Minnesota Orchestra says it’s down to 25 playersmain
The orchestra has rolled out its streamed season from now to the end of the year – no audience and only 25 players on stage.
The concerts will feature ensembles of up to 25 Orchestra musicians performing programs created for at-home viewing instead of an in-person audience. Each performance will offer approximately 60 minutes of music and be programmed with appropriate health and safety measures in place for the musicians.
President and CEO Michelle Miller Burns says: ‘Our goal, as we move concerts indoors for the fall, is to enable audiences to easily access the Orchestra on the platform of their choice—online, on TV or on the radio. In the next phase, we will roll out best practices for inviting limited audiences back into Orchestra Hall.’
Surely she could manage more than 25 players?
