Ways to Watch Virtual Concerts


SRS @ Home Series will be available to watch on YouTube. With a little advance preparation, you can watch the virtual concerts on your TV, instead of the smaller screens of your laptops, phones and iPads. Below are guides for many ways to watch. We highly recommend doing all the prep work at least a few days in advance of the concert. That way, the day of, you'll be ready to watch.

On which devices can I watch the concerts?

You can watch on desktop computers, laptops, tablets, iPads, smartphones (i.e. iPhone & Android), Amazon Fire or your TV. All you need is an Internet connection and the YouTube app installed on your device. To download the YouTube app, please visit the App store on your device.

 

On Our Website

The YouTube videos will be on the SRS @ Home pages for the premieres. You can find it there, and expand it to full screen. If you would like to join the conversation and add comments, click "YouTube" in the bottom right which will take you to the gala or concerts on the Symphony's channel on YouTube.
 

On YouTube

Open YouTube and type Santa Rosa Symphony in the search box. You'll see this photo of Francesco. Click on Santa Rosa Symphony to the right of the photo to link directly to the Symphony's channel. Watch a video to test it out. For your convenience, click here for the link to the Santa Rosa Symphony's channel. On concert day, you will find the video there, at the top of the list.

If you have a Google account (Gmail), you can log in to your YouTube account allowing for more convenient access each time you watch. We recommend subscribing to the Symphony's channel and set-up notifications, then you won't miss a thing.



On your Smart TV





How do I know if I have a Smart TV?

If you have purchased a new TV in the last 6-8 years, chances are, you have a smart TV.

Smart TVs, much like smartphones and smart home devices, offer Internet connectivity and support for a range of apps. This opens up a world of new entertainment options, from streaming videos on Netflix and Hulu to playing games, checking social media and controlling a whole house full of connected gadgets.


 

There are a couple of easy ways to watch YouTube on your Smart TV. The first is through your pre-installed apps, directly on the Smart TV. The second is through your cable TV provider, such as Comcast Xfinity X1 or DISH Network. If you have questions about this, please check with your provider.

Directly on your Smart TV

  • Using your Smart TV remote, search for your YouTube app.
  • Once the app opens, navigate to the search box and use the virtual keyboard to type Santa Rosa Symphony to find the channel. Watch a video to test it.

On Comcast Xfinity X1

  • Using your Xfinity remote control, press the Xfinity button and navigate to Apps > YouTube.
  • Type Santa Rosa Symphony into the search box.
  • Using the voice remote, you can also open the app by saying "YouTube," or search for "Santa Rosa Symphony on YouTube."

On Dish Network

  • On your Hopper, press Home and select Apps.
  • Click on the YouTube tile and search for Santa Rosa Symphony.
  • You can also navigate to Channel 371 in the guide to launch the app.

 

On Old-Style TVs

If you have an old-style TV, you will have to use an external device to make a connection between your device, which has the YouTube app installed, and your TV. A device could be a smartphone, tablet, iPad, or laptop. You will need to have Internet access.
 
You may be able to link your TV to your computer with an HDMI cable, or link wirelessly by purchasing a Chromecast dongle. You can also link your phone via firewire cable. The TV will need an HDMI connection found at the back of the tv. If you do not have an HDMI connection, watching on this TV may not be possible.
