The Marquette Symphony Orchestra does it live in ‘The Great Outdoors’
Conductor Octavio Más-Arocas said it’s the orchestra’s first in-person performance since February.
MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Marquette Symphony Orchestra took advantage of the pleasant weather Sunday afternoon, performing outdoors before a live audience.
The Presque Isle Park Bandshell was the scene for “Symphony in the Park” Sunday.
Audio engineers and Mother Nature teamed up to produce wonderful sound from the orchestra to the audience in-person and online. TV6′s very own Andrew LaCombe performed on cello.
Maestro Octavio Más-Arocas said it was the MSO’s first in-person performance as an orchestra since February.
“We are very limited this year because of the COVID situation. But we just really want to do a concert. Outside, we just have to consider the weather. Later on will be very difficult, so this was actually just like one of the few opportunities we will be having this year," he said.
The outdoor concert limited the capacity to 200 with social distancing and masks required.
