What is a Virtual Concert Hall?

ESYO Launches a Digital Stage to Bring Joy During the COVID-19 Pandemic

COVID-19 has shuttered concert halls across the region while ghost lights watched over the empty stages. Fueled by their passion and determination to make music, ESYO musicians are back together again and bringing joy by performing the music they love. Our in-person gatherings may look different, but ESYO continues to resonate together on-stage and online.

While we cannot perform for audiences now, you can watch full ESYO concerts and relive the "best of" ESYO moments online in our Virtual Concert Hall.

What is a Virtual Concert Hall? 

ESYO's Virtual Concert Hall is a digital stage that allows you to invite ESYO's vibrant young musicians into your home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Listen to your favorite classical masterpiece or Jazz standard on-demand or watch full-length concerts on-the-go from your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Browse free concerts, talks, and interviews, or buy a virtual ticket to watch ESYO perform LIVE from the Mainstage at Proctors. Now you can enjoy ESYO anywhere in the world.

When is the Grand Opening?

ESYO's Virtual Concert Hall is the result of hundreds of hours of development, the hard work of ESYO's young musicians, conductors, and artistic staff, and the generous support of donors and the greater Capital Region community. The Virtual Grand Opening will take place on Thursday, December 3, 2020 at 7pm with a performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 1 performed by ESYO Symphony Orchestra's Symphony Classical.
