How To Watch

Throughout the 2020-2021 season, Les Délices will bring you high-quality, unique digital streaming performances. Whatever your at-home set-up may be, read on to learn how you can optimize your streaming experience for our Concert Series and SalonEra  broadcasts.

Concert Series

Embracing Change Concert Series videos will premiere on YouTube with a live introduction and post-concert Q&A with artists. The concert videos (sans special premiere content) will be accessible on Vimeo for ten days following the premiere date.

Tickets are required to view all Concert Series videos. 

How to Watch

For every Concert Series video, ticket holders will be sent two important URLs: an unlisted link to the YouTube premiere and a password-protected link to the concert footage on Vimeo, where you can watch at your leisure for 10 days following the premiere date. We ask that you do not share these exclusive links with non-ticket holders. 

Please note, you do not need to create a YouTube account to view the premiere on your computer, but if you wish to comment as you watch, you will need to create an account or log in to your existing account. 

To watch the concert on a tablet or smartphone, we recommend downloading and signing in to the YouTube or Vimeo app instead of streaming in your device’s internet browser for a more satisfying streaming experience. To make use of either app, you will need to create a free account with the platform.

Private/unlisted links will be shared with ticket holders by email within a few days of each air date.

Help Wanted: Tech Guru

Is all of this streaming information a piece of cake for you? Les Délices is seeking technology troubleshooters to expand our capacity to help patrons in need. Contact us at info@lesdelices.org if interested or visit our Volunteer page.

SalonEra

SalonEra episodes are FREE to watch with a suggested donation of $10 per episode

SalonEra episodes will be streamed live on YouTube, Facebook, and at salonera.org. To be notified when SalonEra episodes are about to go live, subscribe to our YouTube Channel, “like” us on Facebook, or sign-up for our email list.

How to Watch

SalonEra episodes will be broadcast live on YouTube, Facebook, and at Salonera.org. Join us to enjoy each show in its entirety – and participate in the post-show Q&A using the online chat.

SalonEra episodes will remain on Facebook for 24 hours following the premiere. Select clips will continue to be accessible on for viewing on YouTube thereafter. 

You do not need a YouTube or Facebook account to watch SalonEra on a desktop computer, but you will need to create an account or log in to comment on the video. 

Engage with us!

If you are logged in to your Facebook or YouTube account, you will be able to join in the live chat throughout the concert. We encourage you to react and ask questions throughout the broadcast! A Les Délices team member will be logged in to respond to all comments in real time. Join in the post-show Q&A by typing your questions into the chat!

If you find the chat distracting, you can also watch the stream at salonera.org or adjust your settings to hide the chat feature on Facebook or YouTube. To hide the live comments on Facebook, click the “Quiet Mode” button (it looks like a speech bubble) in the lower right-hand corner of the video screen to hide all comments and reactions. If you’re viewing on YouTube, pop out the chat on YouTube to view it in a separate window or install a Chrome extension to hide the live chat.

Viewing Les Délices Content on your TV

For the best viewing experience, we recommend streaming video on your smart TV’s YouTube or Vimeo app (where applicable) or using a Google Chromecast, AirPlay, Amazon Fire TV Stick, or Apple TV device. Alternatively, if both your TV and laptop feature HDMI ports, you can use an HDMI cable to share your laptop screen and audio to your TV.

Subscribe to Les Délices on YouTube to easily locate the SalonEra episode or Concert Series premiere at showtime. 

To stream from a phone or computer through Google Chromecast or Apple TV, make sure you are connected to the same wifi network and are on the correct television input then click the stream button on your phone, tablet, or computer, and the video should appear on your TV. Once the video is playing, you can use a second device (a computer or phone) to interact with the live-chat feature.
