Toledo, OH (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
This winter, experience the Peristyle and your Toledo Symphony as never before. For select concerts in January and February, the Toledo Symphony, with the help of a generous group of donors called The Producers, will bring stadium style screens to the Peristyle for an up close and personal view of the musicians.
Beginning with the Joshua Bell Gala event on January 31st, large projection screens will be installed on both sides of the Peristyle stage for an immersive symphonic experience. As musicians play, a team of cameramen from WGTE will capture their performance live in HD. As the oboe solo soars over the orchestra, you will see the intensity of the musicians’ performance. As the soloist navigates the most difficult passages of the cadenza, you will be there.
The educational component of TSO in HD will introduce big screens to the annual 4th grade concert for Toledo Public Schools, as well as our Toledo Symphony Youth Orchestra performance. We believe that introducing children to the instruments of the orchestra via the addition of the visual component will prove meaningful to even our youngest listeners.
TSO in HD Concerts include:
- January 31, 2015 – 8PM – Joshua Bell in Concert – SOLD OUT
- February 6 & 7, 2015 – 8PM – Rhapsody in Blue & Ansel Adams: America
- February 8, 2015 – 4PM – Toledo Symphony Youth Orchestras
- February 20, 2015 – 10AM & 11:30AM – Toledo Public Schools 4th Grade Concert
- February 27 & 28, 2015 – 8PM – Bolero!
The Producers are a group of individuals and businesses that help fund special projects for the Toledo Symphony Orchestra. It began in the 70th season in support of the Ode to Joy anniversary concert at the Huntington Center.
