Indiana’s Carmel Symphony, performing outdoors prior to resuming indoor concerts— socially distanced

Posted on: September 29, 2020

“Since you can’t see the Carmel Symphony Orchestra perform indoors, the group is taking its music outside,” reads an unsigned text and video story on Sunday (9/27) at WISH-TV (Indianapolis, IN). “The string quartet performed in a Carmel neighborhood on Sunday evening. Dozens of people pulled out lawn chairs to hear the orchestra in its first backyard concert. The Carmel Symphony says this event happened out of creativity. ‘This is perfect for this kind of neighborhood and having the cul-de-sac to play in. People just walk in, hear it outside in their yards and just walk down here enjoying this, isn’t that fun,’ said Jeanelle Adamak, executive director of Carmel Symphony Orchestra. Next weekend they plan to do the same in a Zionsville neighborhood. The orchestra’s season starts Oct. 10 with limited seating” at the Palladium in Carmel, Indiana, with safety protocols in place. Janna Hymes is music director of the Carmel Symphony.
