We may not be ready for big concerts quite yet, but that doesn’t mean we have to be totally deprived of music. The Spokane Symphony is launching a five-part virtual spring concert series called “Overtones: Connecting Art, Music and Science.” Each installment features a 90-minute orchestral performance as well as conversations between Symphony Director James Lowe and musicians, historians and other local experts. This weekend marks the premiere of the series’ first entry, which is focused on the concept of musical roots, exploring the folk traditions that inspired Polish, Czech and Scottish composers. Access to the entire on-demand series runs $100, but you can also purchase tickets for the individual concerts that drop every two weeks. This first production debuts at noon on Friday and will be available to view through May 28.
Fri, April 2 through Fri, May 28 • $25/show; $100/series • spokanesymphony.org
