The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra is finally returning to Ann Arbor’s Michigan Theater this week to begin its virtual spring season. The orchestra plans on performing three concerts with a full string orchestra at the Michigan Theater along with additional virtual chamber music performances paired with pick-up meals from local Ann Arbor restaurants. To ensure the safety of the orchestra, each performance will be recorded live without an audience. All performances will be on-demand streaming until June 30, 2021. “This is a moment for celebration,” said A2SO Executive Director Tyler Rand. “The symphony has been unable to gather a group of this size for almost a year now, and we’ve all been missing making live symphonic music in our venues.” Rand worked with the symphony’s COVID-19 task force, consisting of board members and musicians, to help develop a comprehensive safety plan for these virtual concerts. “We’re fortunate to have some brilliant medical professionals on our board that have been instrumental in developing our safety protocols,” said Rand.
