South Dakota Symphony announces “Reimagined” 2020-21 season

Posted on: July 21, 2020

The South Dakota Symphony Orchestra announced that its 2020-21 season, entitled “2020-21 Reimagined,” will begin on October 3 with a program of all six Bach Brandenburg Concertos, led by Music Director Delta David Gier. The orchestra has not been on the stage of the Washington Pavilion since March. The 2020-21 season will include classical, pops, and holiday performances continuing through May 1, when it performs an all-Beethoven program featuring the Ninth Symphony and the “Emperor” Piano Concerto with the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra Chorus and pianist Emanuel Ax. All performances will be scaled according to current health and safety guidelines, and seating sections will be reserved for patrons who wish to physically distance. Policies will be established on a concert-by-concert basis, incorporating the most recent data and scientific information. “This season has been curated with great care by our artistic staff and SDSO musicians, with attention to the need to address this particular moment in the history of our community and country,” Gier said in a press release. “Flexibility is a key component of our strategy for navigating these unpredictable times, and further adjustments may be needed as we proceed.”
