What is the future of live performance in Asheville? BPR's Matt Peiken checks in with local performers working in contemporary and classical music, along with managers of the venues that stage them, about how they're strategizing and meeting challenges about performing in front of in-person audiences in a socially distanced reality. This is a condensed version of a Facebook Live broadcast from October 21st, which can be viewed here.
Guests include the musicians Mike Martinez (Natural Born Leaders), Ashley Heath, Andrew Fletcher and The Resonant Rogues, leaders of the Asheville Symphony Orchestra, Brevard Music Center, Pan Harmonia and Asheville Choral Society, and managers of the Wortham Center for the Performing Arts, the Orange Peel/Rabbit Rabbit, the Grey Eagle and Thomas Wolfe Auditorium / Harrah's Cherokee Center.
