Livestream Season FAQ
Q Why is the 52nd Season completely digital with live-streamed concerts?
A. Above all, the health and safety of WSO Patrons, Musicians, and Staff is our paramount concern. As the health situation continues to change with guidelines/regulations
evolving at the same time, the most prudent option is to digitally stream the concerts to your living room, backyard, frankly anywhere with an internet connection!
Q What is a digital live-streamed concert?
A. A digital live-streamed concert is performed by your WSO musicians that can be viewed from the comfort and safety of your own home!
Q. I love my seat is in the Palace Theatre. What happens to it?
A. Any subscription seats that you had prior to this year will remain yours and will carry-over directly to our 2021-2022 season. Our best intention is to present you this Front Row digital seat, until we can safely be all together again in the Palace Theatre.
Q. How do I access the concert live-stream?
A You will receive an e-mail a few days before the concert with the exact link to the concert. We recommend clicking on the link at least 5-10 minutes before concert start time to ensure you are all set. It will direct you to the concert and then all you have to do is sit back relax and enjoy your favorite beverage.
Q. What devices can I watch the concert on?
A. Any device that is internet ready, can stream the concert. Our suggestion would be options like laptops, desktops, or even better streaming the concert to your TV. If those are not available your smartphone or tablet is also an option.
Q. This all sounds like a great alternative, but I am not the most tech-savvy.
A. No problem at all! We recognize that everyone has varying comfortability for technology. The best news is the main technology you need is e-mail. To make the concert experience the easiest for all, we are developing helpful tips and tricks to get you around technology hurdles. Likewise, we are in the process of developing a tech taskforce to be available for consultation around the concert in case you run into an issue.
