2020/VIRTUAL

PBO goes digital.

Experience quintessential PBO — safely on your sofa.

“Regardless of all that’s happening with this pandemic, it is thrilling to become PBO’s music director and I am totally honored. Of course, we had all kinds of plans…and now we just have different plans. There’s so much music still to discover, and current circumstances don’t change that. We can choose to be creative and make the most of it, or we can wait it out without trying. I choose the former. PBO is nimble and resilient, and this moment will illuminate all that we can do together. Join us!”

— Richard
