Livestreaming Newsletter Update, December 1, 2021

Protect yourself from infection,
for unaccompanied chorus,
by David Lang (b. 1963).
David J Brown

This Newsletter is no longer updated—1/12/21.

Alongside the slow resumption of live classical music events with audiences, enterprising organizations and musicians are continuing to produce recitals that are livestreamed, with recordings subsequently available via YouTube, Facebook, etc.

This Newsletter contains notifications of upcoming recitals to be livestreamed when we know about them, so that you can plan to view/listen as they happen, and lists of past events so that if you couldn't tune in at the time, you can instead access the recordings at your leisure. 

Classical Crossroads, Inc. and the South Bay Chamber Music Society—the South Bay area's two principal chamber music organizations—rely on donations to pay their performers. If you've attended their concerts in the past, and have enjoyed their 2020-21 seasons livestreamed, please support them! For Classical Crossroads, Inc. go to the “Donate” button here; for the SBCM, you will find a downloadable donation form here.

Another great resource, with a wider remit covering all performing arts in Southern California, is Performing Arts LIVE, and artists and presenters are encouraged to post their upcoming events here as well.

If you find this Newsletter to be useful, please feel free to Buy Me A Coffee!
