Livestreaming Newsletter Update October 25, 2020

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

Live classical music events with audiences have ceased—a situation that looks fair to continue indefinitely—but enterprising organizations and musicians are moving to a format of recitals with no audience present but 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. It is reposted on Facebook when there are updates of future live events.

Classical Crossroads, Inc. and the South Bay Chamber Music Society—our area's two principal chamber music organizations—rely on donations to pay their performers. If you've attended their concerts in the past, and are now looking forward to 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.

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