Now that the Corona Pandemic has disrupted our music life we’re reminded how dramatically music plays a part in keeping people’s spirits up. Let’s collect “stay-at-home” music resources here.
Our local (SF Bay Area) musicians are playing and broadcasting their music. Here are some wonderful streams to continue to connect with local artists. Please post ideas below or send via our contact page and we’ll add them to the list.
SF Symphony’s principal oboe Eugene Izotov plays Bach for you:
SF Symphony is streaming its great Keeping Score series for free.
Please send us links of your own or to your favorite local artists!
Check out this terrific NPR site that updates worldwide livestreams.
And there are some active learning resources online, too, here’s a violin practice tips blog sent out by CMNC (Chamber Musicians of Northern CA).
If you have any other ideas please post here or send via our contact page to share with your fellow musicians. Or write about your experiences as a stay-at-home musician – we’d love to publish your blog entries. Let’s all stay active while we’re stuck at home.
