DRSO Says “Let There Be Music”
The first year of the “Weirdness Pandemic” provided more than a fair share of frustration for most of us, including the members of the Deep River Symphony Orchestra (DRSO) and their loyal supporters. Despite the strings rehearsing for much of the season, and despite plans to involve wind and brass players, shutdowns ended up doing just that – shutting us down - before we could offer any public performance.
Now, a new season with the optimism of a mostly vaccinated population, and at the same time a myriad of questions surrounding venues, audience protocols, player safety issues, et cetera. But the DRSO has a plan!
We are aiming for performances of some sort, somewhere, in October and December. The strings will re-vitalize the repertoire from last seasons aborted season for presentation in October. The Winds and Brass will work through their accumulated rust to prepare a December concert. We all have fingers and toes crossed that we will be able to work through the Covid obstacles to bring back “Live Music” to our audience, new and old.
As for 2022, we do have plans for full orchestra concerts in February and May. We will have to sit on those for the time being until we see what lies in store. Meanwhile we are grateful for your continued support, and we truly can’t wait to entertain you once again.
Check out our Facebook page for season concert details, information about our soloists, and other DRSO news.
This is the Deep River Symphony Orchestra’s 68th season of playing to audiences here in the Upper Ottawa Valley. It is made possible in part by the kind support of our local sponsors.
