FAQ About the Live Stream

Where can I watch the performance?
You will be able to watch it LIVE on this page on Sunday, October 25 at 3:00PM EST.  If for some reason you are having trouble seeing the LIVESTREAM here please visit our YouTube Live Stream Channel at the following link https://youtu.be/xMd–OKF-xA .

Is the performance really live?
Yes! There will be pre-recorded messages and videos prior to 3:00 p.m. EST. At that time, we go live.

Will there be a live chat during the performance?
We will have a live chat during the performance.

Great! What is a live chat?
Viewers will have an opportunity to ask questions and post comments about the concert in real time. In order to do so, you will need a YouTube account. If you don’t have one, you may set one up prior to the concert using a Gmail address. We will have a moderator from the orchestra answering questions and fielding comments.

How much are tickets?
The concert is free. If you would like to make a donation to help cover our
costs, there will be a “Donate” button on our web site. All donations will be
acknowledged in an upcoming Constant Contact e-mail that will also be posted
on our Facebook page. Anyone donating $250 or more will receive a Boston Civic Symphony mask.

How long is the concert?
The performance will last approximately seventy-five minutes – about an hour
less than most Avengers movies and five hours less than a Super Bowl
broadcast.

Is there an intermission?
There will be no intermission, so stock up on your favorite “classical music
snacks” prior to 3:00.

What happens if there are technical difficulties?
Earthquakes during the World Series? A blackout during the Super Bowl? Yeah, it could happen to us too. If we experience technical problems, a notice will be posted on our Facebook page. Hopefully we will have a back-up system that will enable us to post the concert on our YouTube channel at a later date.

Can I applaud after each piece?
Yes! Unfortunately our musicians won’t be able to see or hear you, but express
your enjoyment by post your comments on the Live Chat and on our Facebook and our YouTube page later.

Oh no! I missed the concert or I won’t be able to make it.  Is there going to be a recording of the concert?

Yes. Just as any uploaded YouTube video.  It will be made available on this page and on our YouTube Channel after the concert is over.

I missed the start of the concert.  Can I watch from the beginning?

Yes. You will have the ability during the Live Stream to rewind from the beginning.  However, if you want to send a live chat response it may not be in real time.

I have other questions. Who can I contact?
Send your questions to Michele Mortensen, Executive Director, at
thebostoncivicsymphony@gmail.com.
