GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Grand Rapids Symphony says it will soon return to the stage — sort of.

The symphony, shut down because of the coronavirus, says it will resume shows with a new program called Sidewalk Serenades.

That program allows small groups to pay $300 for a 30-minute classical music concert in their driveway. Audiences must be limited to 10 people and everyone must wear a mask.

Slots are open at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 20 through Aug. 22 and Aug. 27 through Aug. 29. You can register online.

The Grand Rapids Civic Theatre has also been doing some similar outdoor shows, dubbed Driveway Cabaret.

***Editor’s note: A previous version of the story had listed an incorrect time of the slots available. This has been corrected and updated.
