Update: The Live & Local Lunch series has been postponed until January 2021. However, American Sirens will be opening for the Christmas Tenors on Dec. 22 as part of the Frontyard Festival.

Yet another layer of the Dr. Phillips Center’s incredibly robust answer to in-person live music in the COVID age, the Live & Local Lunch series presents, as its name implies, lunchtime matinee concerts as part of the Frontyard Festival.

From 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on show days, members of the Central Florida Musician's Association will perform for free.

You pick one of the plaza’s purpose-built distanced boxes and take in the complimentary offering. What’s more, food and drinks from on-site restaurants can be delivered right to you.

This latest edition is all about classic holiday style with the American Sirens.

The cabaret trio of Lindsay Flick, Rachel Copeland, and Alejandra Martinez rolls things back to the jazz golden age from the 1920s to the 1940s.

The free show begins at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Remember: If you go out, respect everyone’s distance, for all our sakes.
