Westminster’s Virtual Concert Hall

04/16/2020

April is usually a busy month for Westminster’s ensembles, as each ensemble presents at least one concert on campus.  It’s also the time when the Westminster Symphonic Choir heads to Philadelphia or New York for performances with a major orchestra. 

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the cancellation of all spring concerts, including a series of performances of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with The Philadelphia Orchestra, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, at Verizon Hall in Philadelphia and Carnegie Hall in New York.

For everyone longing to experience a Westminster concert, we’ve assembled a list of recorded concerts (video and audio) from the past several seasons that are available to enjoy online.  Follow the link with each entry and enjoy reliving some glorious musical moments and discovering some new ones.

We look forward to sharing Westminster’s music with our loyal audiences very soon.
