How Live Musical Performances Are Surviving Through COVID
This episode originally aired on Nov. 19, 2020.
Musical performances have been hit particularly hard by COVID-19. Venues are closed for the foreseeable future and many groups have had to lay off performers.
The Columbus Symphony has managed to keep all of its full-time staff and even managed a few concerts this fall with more planned for the holidays.
We discuss how orchestras are adapting to the pandemic.
Take a look at the Columbus Symphony's Community Concert Series from the fall in this segment from Broad & High on WOSU TV.
