Sun Valley Music Festival: Re-imagined 2020 Summer Season @ Sun Valley Pavilion
12:00 am
The Sun Valley Music Festival is going online this summer. Music Director Alasdair Neale is working with the musicians to create an entirely new season from scratch, to be broadcast each scheduled concert evening from the Festival’s website. This transformation will allow musicians to make music, faculty to teach, students to learn, and audiences to enjoy music all while following whatever guidelines for health and safety may be in place in July and August, as well as personal preferences. The reimagined season comes out of an abundance of caution with regard to in-person gatherings, not only in concert seating areas but also in the homes of housing hosts, the classrooms of music students, the stages of musicians, and the gathering and reception areas of patrons. The Pavilion interior will not be used this summer. However, conditions permitting, the Big Screen and sound system on the Lawn will be activated, allowing audiences to gather outside to enjoy each concert, with appropriate physical distancing. New repertoire, concert formats, and information on attending will be announced late June on the Festival website. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5I8fCMYpLI&feature=youtu.be Additional Details The Gala Concert is on – and free!  Audra McDonald, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Kelli O’Hara will create a special, ...
