PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Orchestra said it will perform Thursday’s scheduled concert to an empty Verizon Hall, but have it broadcast live online.

The orchestra said Thursday that it is offering the concert as a way to share music during a wave of event cancellations in the Philadelphia region as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases grows.

The orchestra’s radio partner, WRTI-FM, will broadcast the performance on Friday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.

Otherwise, the orchestra has canceled all rehearsals, performances and events through March 23, including performances at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts and the Academy of Music.
