Virtual Performances: A Brief Resource

While it’s become harder to find a live performance to enjoy in person, the upside is that more organizations than ever are making their concerts available on the web. Many are free (you can search YouTube and find almost any ensemble), but we also recommend these organizations—some local, some national—as a place to start.

Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center

CMS Front Row provides a virtual front row seat to newly curated chamber music events, but you’ll also find a wealth of other resources on this site, including terrific lectures from their series Inside Chamber Music Plus.

Watch and Listen
DPAA Virtual Streams

Enjoy an array of exciting virtual performances from Dayton Opera, Dayton Ballet, and the Dayton Philharmonic—from small ensembles who have taken the stage to record concerts live, to replays of previous DPAA performances.

Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra

Join the CSO and Pops virtually to experience great music; many concerts are now free to the public as part of the organization’s commitment to community access.

Virtually Experience Performances
American Pianists Association

The American Pianists Association maintains a diverse calendar of piano performances in America—most of them now virtual. Their organization lists world class pianists, both classical and jazz.

CSOtv is your at-home access to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, with on-demand digital performances of a wide range of classical programming that you can stream on your computer, tablet, smartphone or smart TV. Most performances on CSOtv are available for free.

Discover Classical Radio

Yes, radio! Dayton is fortunate to have its own classical radio station: WDPR 88.1 FM. While you won’t find video here, there is a constant stream of great content—most often with curated by local announcers. Listen live locally!
