Classical music with classical literature: New Drive Up Concerts

We’ve seen a number of pop up drive in movies and concerts since the reopening from Covid shutdown. Now the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra (SSO), Bossier Parish Library and Shreve Memorial Library are coming together for four classical drive up concerts featuring the SSO’s Brass Quintet, Woodwind Quintet and String Quartet. The size of the parking lot at each library branch determines how many people can attend yet each performance is free and open to the public.
