The Western Piedmont Symphony will perform a Concert for the Community to unite our community through music on March 6, 2021 at the Drendel Auditorium at the SALT Block and via livestream at 7:30 p.m. This concert will highlight incredible music, covering a wide range of styles that also create many important partnerships related to the music. Six local cultural organizations feature as part of these collaborations in pre-recorded videos prior to each piece of music. A return to live classical music in a safe, community-focused way.
