“The Bangor Symphony Orchestra is recording five concerts in the spring of 2021 for its 125th anniversary season that audiences can stream safely from home,” writes Chloe Teboe in Tuesday’s (2/9) News Center Maine (Portland). “On Friday, the BSO will begin streaming its 125th anniversary season digitally…. Five different concerts will be released online each month through June. In late January, the musicians met up to rehearse and record music with a professional camera crew—socially distanced, while wearing masks…. ‘It was so cathartic to see everybody when you haven’t seen your colleagues in so long,’ [said] Marison Solomon, a longtime cellist with the BSO…. Solomon says she was excited to take part in the BSO’s first concert this season (‘Digital Masterworks I: Bach to Bloch’), recorded in front of cameras instead of a live audience…. Brian Hinrichs, executive director of the BSO, says it was important to him and his team to stay connected to their community and ‘do right’ by this historic anniversary…. It’s an opportunity for the musicians to reunite with each other, too.” Music Director Lucas Richman asked, “If we’re not bringing music to our audience, then what are we doing?”
