DULUTH, Minnesota – While the COVID-19 pandemic ended the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra’s 2019-20 Season early, the DSSO wants to make sure live music remains a part of our lives in the Twin Ports. Thanks to the efforts by our musicians and staff, you can now enjoy past performances of the Orchestra from the comfort of your home.
DSSO at Home, has been created to provide you with a connection to the Orchestra while we are unable to safely gather together in Symphony Hall.
“We were all disappointed that we were unable to continue to bring the Twin Ports community live concerts over the past three months,” says Executive Director Brandon VanWaeyenberghe. “However, this digital platform is a great way to both remain connected to the organization and discover great music performed by members of our community. I am so grateful for the musicians, staff, and board who worked to pull this effort together. This will not replace performing for a live audience, but it will help us bridge the gap until we can return in a safe and healthy manner.”
DSSO at Home is where you will find links to our most recent social media posts, private recitals from our musicians, and discussions with Music Director Dirk Meyer. You will also have access to streaming past performances on-demand. Every week through September, we will release a recording that will be available to stream for 45 days. WDSE-WRPT is also rebroadcasting their recordings of four DSSO performances every Friday at 9 pm in May on PBS North. These same recordings will be available on Saturday morning on DSSO at Home.
Dirk Meyer shares his excitement, “DSSO at Home lets us relive some of the great musical moments of the recent past and lets us look forward to the near future, when we can enjoy the talents of our wonderful musicians, and share in the experience of live orchestral music once more.”
Access to viewing and hearing the concerts is absolutely free, all you have to do is make a quick account with your name and e-mail address. Visit dsso.com/athome to find the latest posts and learn how to access the DSSO’s on-demand content.
