Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra
Where in the World is the OPO
“Where in the world is the OPO” highlights our 2020 Young People’s Concert, our first-ever virtual edition of that program. Using a spy theme and the title “Where in the World is the OPO,” the concert shows the orchestra defeating the evil Dr. Monotone with the help of great music – and the audience! Over 75,000 young people viewed this program online.
“When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down school field trips, we were naturally concerned about how our longstanding annual Young People’s Concerts would continue. Thanks to innovation, creativity, and hard work, we created a Virtual Young People’s Concert that reached more students (over 75,000) than we ever had before. We’re now working on an even better virtual concert for 2021; while we look forward to presenting these concerts live and in person again as soon as we are able, till then, we’ll continue to do whatever it takes to share music with our community’s kids.” – Paul Helfrich, Executive Director, Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra
