SoundCheck concerts presented by Camden Opera House will be livestream-only for the remainder of the year; there will be no live audiences. Livestreams will be accessible at no charge on the Opera House’s Facebook page and, after a day or two, on its YouTube channel.

The Opera House began the SoundCheck series in August with limited audience sizes and strict physical distancing. “We love having an audience in the house, and the response has been great,” said COH Manager Dave Morrison in a news release. “But our top priority is to try to keep our audience, the performers and our staff as safe as possible.”

Upcoming livestreams will include Joe K. Walsh and Celia Woodsmith at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, November 20, and Castlebay, presenting “’Tis Winter Now: Christmas in New England,” at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 11.

Current ticketholders may convert their tickets to Community Arts Fund donations or receive a refund; for more information, email dernest@camdenmaine.gov. Those watching the livestream are encouraged to consider donating to the fund by visiting camdenoperahouse.com.
