Kyushu Symphony Resumes Performances

The Kyushu Symphony Orchestra will resume concerts for the first time since the regional outbreak of COVID-19. The 387th edition of the group’s regular concert will take place on July 17 at ACROS Fukuoka, presenting Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, Hakata Rhapsody, and more. Prevention measures against the spread of the new coronavirus will be implemented for musicians and audiences, including cutting the program by half (approx. 1 hour.) It may be a challenge for musicians to find a safe way to create quality harmonies, but the group leader appreciated their return to the stage. Source: Sankei
