New So. Tier Symphony Website Links Live Virtual Concerts | Cattaraugus County


OLEAN – Southern Tier Symphony, a regional orchestra bringing together professional musicians for concerts, offers experiences from the comforts of home to the concert hall.

The website offers access to the Southern Tier Symphony YouTube channel, where it’s easy to keep up to date with last season’s virtual concerts performed by symphony musicians.

“With the pandemic, we wanted to figure out how we could still engage with our audience even though we couldn’t be together in the traditional concert hall,” said Laura Peterson, executive director of the Southern Tier Symphony.

The symphony offered three online programs of music and stories.

“We had to get creative,” said Benjamin Grow, music director and conductor of the Southern Tier Symphony. “What we imagined are these virtual concerts. We used technology and the internet to bring together orchestra members from different places and situations. We’ve expanded the idea to include sharing stories from our members and other prominent musicians in our community. We were able to stay connected. »

The website maintains this connection. Past online programs are available. Information about upcoming live performances and tickets are also here.

The symphony is gearing up for live performances on March 19 and 20 at the symphony’s host venues, St. Bonaventure University, the Quick Center for the Arts and the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, Bromeley Family Theatre.
