VERO BEACH ― The Space Coast Symphony Orchestra will present its latest drive-in concert, “Fan Favorites Redux,” on Friday, September 11 at 7 p.m. at Pathway Church in Vero Beach.
Fan Favorites Redux features popular works by Gershwin, Ravel, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Rossini, Beethoven and more.
SCSO Principal Trombonist, Alexis Regazzi is the featured soloist for the virtuosic showpiece, "Blue Bells of Scotland." Andrew Cleaver will provide the comic play-by-play narration during the PDQ Bach version of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5.
"We have a list 11 seasons long of favorites the audience would love to hear," said SCSO conductor and Artistic Director Aaron T. Collins. "Nevertheless, we've tried hard to satisfy as many requests as possible with this really diverse program of great music. And we are especially happy to have a chance to feature the talented Alex Regazzi in an iconic work for trombone."
For the drive-in concerts, musicians perform safely distanced from each other, while concert attendees are invited to set up their own seating next to their vehicles. Concert-goers may also remain in their cars and tune their radios to a live feed of the music.
The orchestra's usual year-round performances have been significantly curtailed by the COVID-19 pandemic. But the success of its drive-in summer concerts has presented a way forward for the innovative musical organization: the SCSO will be performing out of doors through December, with hopes of returning to the concert hall in the very early months of 2021.
Tickets for the drive-in concerts are $10 per person or $25 per carful of adults, available at SpaceCoastSymphony.org or Marine Bank & Trust branches in Vero Beach. Admission is free for ages 18 and under or with a student ID. Advance online ticket sales are encouraged, to help limit social interaction with parking attendants.
