The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s season finale this weekend is sold out, but for those who still want to see the show, you’re in luck.

The orchestra announced Tuesday morning it will begin livestreaming many of its concerts in HD, starting with Saturday’s performance of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony.

The orchestra has also made past concerts available on-demand.

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra is the first major orchestra in the U.S. to offer free livestreaming of its concerts. MPR’s Cathy Wurzer spoke with SPCO President Jon Limbacher about the new concert library.
