The COVID-19 pandemic may have temporarily halted live concerts in Overton Park, but the Levitt Shell will continue to offer Memphians, and those around the world, music this fall.
Starting next month, the Shell will continue to broadcast classic concerts from its archive online, every Friday, as part of the Orion Virtual Music Series. A set of new concerts will be broadcast on Saturdays as a part of the Orion-sponsored ShellStream series.
The programming will start Sept. 4 with a vintage performance by Stax Music Academy, and a new performance by bluesman John Németh & the Blue Dreamers is Sept. 5. The dual concert series will continue through Sept. 26.
The online concert plan follows the Shell’s decision to remain dark as a live venue though the balance of 2020 due to the pandemic.
