Due to the current health crisis, many concerts and other public events are being cancelled. But you can still attend a concert in the comfort of your own home. Casual dress code ok!
Check out the concert library offered by The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. You’re sure to find a few favorites there: Jeremy Denk playing Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A Minor, Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony , or Haydn’s Symphony No. 6, Morning, just to name a few. There is also a large selection of audio-only performances for your listening pleasure.
Opera fans will love Operavision’s library of great performances, including Carmen, Tosca, and The Barber of Seville, among others. At the current time, there are plans to broadcast live performances of several of Mozart’s operas this month, though the schedule may change as the current situation evolves. Here’s the current schedule.
March 19, 19:00 CET (GMT +1, 2:00 EDT) Così fan tutte

These are difficult times. I hope the on-demand performances available at the above sites will add a soothing element to your day.
Be safe out there, folks! Wishing you all health and serenity.
