You can’t go see the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in person right now, because its concerts are one of many large gatherings cancelled amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

But that doesn’t mean the music has to stop.

The VSO is livestreaming its BeethovenFest finale at 2 pm Pacific Time on Sunday.

“We’d love for you to join us,” the orchestra tweeted.

Saleem Ashkar is playing Piano Concerto No. 4, and Otto Tausk is directing Symphony No. 6 “Pastorale.”

You can tune in on the VSO’s website.
