MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra's 2021 season will be entirely virtual, the MSO announced Monday.

The virtual season will feature 12 classics performances and four pops performances, all of which will be live-streamed and on-demand.

According to the MSO, "concerts will feature chamber orchestra and smaller ensemble offerings performed by the musicians of the MSO; repertoire, guest artists, and other details currently are being prepared."

The season will be available exclusively for subscribers.

“I’m filled with joy and anticipation on behalf of the orchestra and staff that we have made a commitment not to go dark,” said Ken-David Masur, music director of the MSO. “We have thrilling programs, and an opportunity to showcase our incredible musicians in a way never before possible."

The change to a totally virtual season comes after "the Bradley Symphony Center, which was set to be completed in September 2020, sustained significant flood damage in the basement following an intense rainstorm and steam tunnel failure," according to the MSO.

The MSO will also be resuming their Musical Journeys podcast, hosted and hand-curated by Mastro Masur, on Sept. 18.
