BVSO Invites The Community To Free Outdoor Chamber Series
Information provided by Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra
After the unforeseen cancellation of spring and summer events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra is planning to present a special gift to the community with a triumphant return to the stage this fall within the coming weeks! Maestro Marcelo Bussiki and the professional BVSO musicians will provide a FREE Chamber Music Series that will take place in the beautiful outdoors in The Pavilion at Lake Walk just outside The Stella Hotel.
These performances will be FREE and INFORMAL. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and/or lawn chairs to sit comfortably on the grounds and asked to sit in a socially distanced seating arrangement as well as follow state and local safety guidelines*. After the concert, event goers can have dinner at The Stella or get a drink from the bar in The Stella ahead of the concert. The hotel also plans to serve “to go” food and drink options so that attendees can pick up provisions and bring them over to the Pavilion area to enjoy during the performances.
