South Carolina’s Charleston Symphony Orchestra and the Woodlands Nature Reserve are collaborating to present “Brass in the Woods,” a family-friendly outdoor concert, on April 25. The 4 p.m. concert will feature the Charleston Symphony’s brass quintet performing music from Broadway, the Great American Songbook, and New Orleans jazz. Audiences may bring picnic baskets, coolers, blankets, and chairs to the concert, which will also include commentary from the musicians. The Woodlands Nature Reserve has implemented COVID-19 health and safety practices that include social spacing guidelines throughout the property and increased frequency of cleaning and sanitizing of common areas. During the 2020-21 season, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra has performed in-person concerts at the Charleston Gaillard Center; the current season concluded on April 16-17 with three performances of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, led by Music Director Ken Lam. The CSO this season also has been offering streamed concerts at its website and on Vimeo.
