Tallahassee Symphony to offer live, online “salon” concerts in 2020-21 season

Posted on: July 10, 2020

“Letters are on their way to Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra season ticket holders and patrons announcing not only the guest artists that Music Director Darko Butorac describes as ‘the best roster of artists in our history,’ but the new way in which music lovers can enjoy the TSO,” writes Marina Brown in Thursday’s (7/9) Tallahassee Democrat (FL). “ ‘Though our performances won’t be taking place on our regular stage,’ says CEO Mandy Stringer, ‘we will present “salon” concerts—wonderful opportunities to get up-close-and-personal with the music and musicians in a way the large concert hall does not afford.’ … Once you’ve subscribed and become a ‘ticket holder,’ you’ll be given your own private passcode to enter the concert website where the music will be live-streamed….. The season will start Sept. 11, and run through March 27. Opening night will feature [tenor] Lawrence Brownlee,” and featured musicians in other concerts will include cellist Joshua Roman, violinist Blake Pouliot, pianist Jon Kimura Parker, the string trio Time for Three, and vocalists Mikki Sodergren and Michael Maliakel. “The price for the 2020-21 season is ‘$250 for six concerts. The price is per household, not per individual,’ says Stringer.”
