Orchestras in the Pandemic era

3 posts in this topic

Haven't read this piece yet.  I will say that the Toronto Symphony Orchestra has pivoted to very, very tiny on-line offerings - usually a 5-10 minute duet.  I find it far too depressing to bother with.  Of course, given the strict lockdown Toronto is under at the moment, it is not possible for larger ensembles to perform with or without an audience.

Up until recently, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra was performing slightly shorter evenings (60-75 minute performances) with a slightly scaled back orchestra (in an empty hall) and then putting these on line.  Given that BC is ramping up its restrictions, this may be coming to a halt as well.  At any rate, I am subscribing to the VSO on-line season whereas the TSO just is not worth it at the moment.
