WHAT IS A VIRTUAL EVENT?
Since Stamford Symphony is not presenting any live concerts this fall and winter, our online broadcasts are a new way to enjoy the Orchestra with more opportunities to get up close and personal with our musicians, Music Director Michael Stern and special guests. Included in these events you will find more social and historical context and interaction with Michael Stern including a live chat.
WHY IS THE ONLINE PREMIERE FREE?
Typically, all our events would be ticketed. This year, thanks to all our generous donors, sponsors and loyal subscribers who have continued to subscribe with us through the season new and old, Stamford Symphony is able to provide music to everyone virtually and free of charge. We believe that music can heal in times of stress and our goal is not to limit who can access the music but to share it with everyone in the community, and indeed around the world, who need it right now.
In lieu of purchasing tickets we do hope you will consider a donation. Your contribution will help us continue to provide more online events for everyone to enjoy. No donation is too small. The Stamford Symphony is grateful for your support!
WHAT TIME DOES YOUTHFUL GIFTS START?
The online premiere starts at 7:30pm on Saturday March 6th. All pre-registered guests will receive an email reminder the day of the event with a direct link to watch the concert. If you cannot find your email, no worries - just join us at www.stamfordsymphony.org after 7pm. A YouTube window will appear and all you need to do is hit the "play' button.
We recommend logging on a little early to be sure that you will not miss a minute of the premiere and give you time to resolve any potential technical difficulties!
