With the spread of COVID-19 around the world, communities are encouraged to practice social distancing. This decision will hopefully protect those most vulnerable and save lives. Unfortunately, this means that countless concerts and public gatherings are being canceled. While this decision is necessary, it leaves audience members without art and leaves artists without means to share.
Luckily, the world is connected digitally like never before. This allows for many concerts and companies to live-broadcast or offer streams to share music and offer comfort.As always, you can stream classical music from our station, classical915.org. This month we are featuring female composers and performers as part of women’s history month. Furthermore, while to me there is no thrill quite like hearing a performance live, in a time where that may not be possible here is what several companies are doing and what concert attendance looks like right now.
