Philharmonic to host virtual SALUTE! concert Friday

COLUMBUS, Ind. — The Columbus Indiana Philharmonic will host a virtual SALUTE! Watch Party at 7 p.m. Friday on the orchestra’s Facebook page.

What would have been the 20th annual SALUTE! live concert has been canceled amid the COVID-19 pandemic. But the Philharmonic will feature video clips of past concerts, plus live discussion and commentary about the concerts through the years.

“We’re determined to find a way to preserve your SALUTE! tradition while keeping a safe distance,” orchestra leaders posted on Facebook.
