Arts organizations around the world are getting creative in the ways in which they reach audiences in the wake of COVID-19 safety measures. Performances that were once scheduled to take place in theatres are now reaching audiences at every corner of the globe, through Livestreaming.
All Classical Portland is in awe of the organizations that have quickly adapted to these difficult circumstances, and continue to serve and inspire and audiences when they need it most. In this spotlight, you will find a list of some of our favorite upcoming live stream events, and we will update this spotlight on an ongoing basis. You may also refer to Classical Music Communication’s Live-streamed Concert Database and the Social Distancing Festival. If you have questions about these events, please contact the organizations directly. Thank you!
