The Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra’s last indoor performance was in February, before the coronavirus pandemic hit. Like the town’s other arts organizations, the RSO has had to reinvent its programming on the fly, starting with online presentations and continuing with outdoor performances, in collaboration with Keeler Tavern Museum and History Center, the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, and the Ridgefield Playhouse. Meeting the requirements of social distancing means careful arrangements when dealing with musicians, particularly those playing horns or other wind instruments.
