AT HOME RESOURCES: VIDEO PERFORMANCES
Below you'll find a list of organizations and individuals with full concert experiences online. If you like what you see/hear PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING to these organizations/individuals. Like so many people right now, performers who are not part of a unionized, salaried, orchestra are being hit very hard by concert and teaching cancellations. Support can come in many ways: $ donations are great, but also great is support through streaming. Listen to music from independent artists - stream their music on loop (and on silent) while you sleep at night - every .0001 cent helps! You can stream my music on silent loop from your favourite platform here ;)
ONLINE PERFORMANCES LIVESTREAMED FROM MUSICIANS' HOMES DURING COVID-19 SHUTDOWN
Live-streaming on facebook every Saturday at 3pm.
The launch of MCP’s CO-VIDeo Concerts aims to bring financial aid to our struggling MCP Artists, allow them a creative outlet, and give our audience the chance to continue to connect with MCP Artists and hear them perform. So once a week, every week, on Saturdays at 3 PM (EDT), MCP will present a one hour concert via Facebook livestream at our Facebook page (click here to access). Due to the necessity of social distancing, most performances will be solo, though as there are some MCP Artists who are married or family members living together, some chamber performances will be possible. Each will include information given by each MCP Artist about the works performed, as well as a description of their experience living in this new, ever-changing creative environment.
All proceeds donated during these concerts or with the indicated intent being for these concerts will be split evenly among the performers on each program. Donations can be made securely online via Paypal by clicking here or on the icon below, or for information on making donations by mail, please click here.
Livestreaming on ZOOM, every night, 7:00-8:30pm ET.
A brand new online event from Juilliard alum Nicholas King that features musical performances and intriguing discussions (about something other than toilet paper fights!) It's also an opportunity for us to support musicians who have had their concerts cancelled. Join us tonight for our first program over Zoom from 7:00-8:30pm ET.

ONLINE PERFORMANCES THAT HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE
The following selections are from some of my favourite independent/local artists/individuals - this is just a start - can't wait to hear about what you recommend as well!
Many artists upload videos of their performances to Youtube for free. Get lost in a youtube black hole of classical music videos - it can be quite fun! Use your discretion - sometimes the worst performances have the highest view-count and vice versa.
