“With new cases surging of COVID-19, the Greenwich Symphony Orchestra announced it has postponed its concerts scheduled for this weekend,” writes Karen Tensa in Tuesday’s (1/4) Greenwich Time (CT). “The GSO made the decision ‘due to the need to protect the public health and the shortage of testing resources,’ according to a post on its website. ‘We will notify the community as soon as we have new dates when [music director candidate] Mélisse Brunet will conduct the orchestra,’ the website said…. This weekend’s canceled concerts had been scheduled for Jan. 8 and Jan. 9 at the Performing Arts Center at Greenwich High School. The GSO’s next series of concerts is scheduled for Feb. 26 and 27 … with Conductor Joshua Gersen and pianist Sara Davis Buechner. Brunet is one of five candidates … taking a turn as conductor during the 2021-22 season…. The other four finalists are: David Lockington, conductor laureate of the Grand Rapids Symphony in Michigan; Martin Makjut, music director of the Rogue Valley Symphony in Oregon; Stuart Malina, music director and conductor of the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra in Pennsylvania; and Ransom Wilson, music director of the Redlands Symphony in California.”
