Music to Cheer the Soul…

We all know, and hopefully have experienced, music that lifts the soul. In Maura Hogan’s P&C article Sunday article (March 22) she mentions several opportunities to listen to music since we can’t go out for a concert. In this age of the coronavirus an increasing number of orchestra, symphonies, and bands have begun streaming their concerts so that we can watch them from the safety and comfort of our homes.

March 21 – We already told you about Abigail Kent, who was set to depart for her recital in pursuit of her doctoral degree in musical art at The Julliard School in New York.  Instead of going in person, she is live streaming her recital at 4:00 pm today (March 21).  Click here to watch on Facebook.
