"The STAT grant enabled the Stratford Symphony to adapt its live concerts to a digital platform in the absence of live concerts and events. This project enabled the SSO to continue to bring cultural events to the local community and globally through the internet. The SSO partnered with Ballinran Entertainment to produce premium quality concert films that will be a template for the future, even as our audiences gradually return to the concert hall."
