Amid pandemic, Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra happy to be performing again
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After postponing and cancelling shows since the pandemic began, Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra brought back its operations in August. Like many organizations its had to make changes, but is excited to be back out there.
“It’s amazing to be back, I mean the musicians, and the orchestra and I both feel the same way, that we’re so lucky to get back to doing what we love and we’re very grateful,” said Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra music director and conductor, William Intriligator.
On Saturday Nov. 14 the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra’s brass, woodwinds and percussion sections will be on display. The full stage will be filled but the musicians will be socially distanced and wearing masks. What’s also different, is there is limited seating at the Cheyenne Civic Center because of COVID-19, so if you might not feel safe going out or don’t get a ticket for the in person show, you can live stream the performances.
Intriligator said the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra loves the relationship it has with the community and appreciates the community’s continued support.
“This is just an incredible relationship that we have, and this community has been wonderfully supportive for over 60 years, and so that relationship, and that experience of hearing the orchestra whether it be live or live streamed, is really special for both sides," said Intriligator.
The November concert will be this Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. the evening show will also have live stream tickets available. You can learn more about the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra by going to its website here.
