The Billings Symphony Orchestra & Chorale presents the “Who Cares Symphony Virtual Benefit”

Billings Arts

As many of you know, the BSOC has had to cancel the remaining of our 2019-2020 symphony season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes our annual Symphony Benefit. Because of this, we have a special treat for all our followers.  We are offering a special performance by John Roberts y Pan Blanco LIVE AND FREE from Craft Local on Tuesday, May 5 at 7 pm via Facebook Live and YouTube Live!

In our continuing efforts to Enrich Lives Through Music, we need your help now more than ever! The Billings Symphony Orchestra & Chorale participate in more than 100 free education and outreach programs each year through Explore Music!. This year, your support will help expand our reach for added community engagement and education outreach events. We are developing new methods of delivering outreach experiences and expanding our ability to provide more remote engagement.

Who Cares about the Billings Community?
Who Cares about music education in the schools?
Who Cares about providing music to nursing home residents?
Who Cares about providing positive musical influence to inmates in the Montana Women’s Prison?
Who Cares about pediatric and cancer patients?
Who Cares about long-term care patients at St. Vincent & Billings Clinic?


We know you do too!

Join us on Facebook & YouTube throughout the day on Tuesday, May 5th as we provide a full day of music!  We will be rebroadcasting our Connection Concerts from the homes of BSOC musicians, all leading up to the live concert at 7:00 pm.

“There is no better expression of support for our musicians and the future of the Billings Symphony than supporting the event and helping to bridge this period of uncertainty” states Ignacio Barron Viela, Executive Director. “The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly affected all of our lives – from the classical musicians to their audiences and beyond. We’re thrilled and grateful to be working with John Roberts y Pan Blanco to bring live music to viewers everywhere while raising much-needed funds for community engagement projects and education outreach events”
