So honored to be a part of a powerful collaboration with the amazing Marina Albero, Adriana Giordana, and Chava Mirel. Thank you, Abe Beeson and KNKX for this great article. https://www.knkx.org/post/northwest-musicians-creatively-cope-coronavirus-outbreak Successful musicians often need to be creative hustlers to make a living as artists. With the COVID-19 outbreak leading to increasing concert cancellations, those hustling skills are being put to a serious test. One musician, pianist Marina Albero, is experimenting with a new way for musicians to connect with their audience — virtually.
Albero will host a live streaming concert on Facebook at 7 p.m. this Sunday, March 15, in what she's calling The Quarantine Sessions. This effort was born of distress, Albero says. She had a performance in Seattle canceled last week due to the outbreak. Then, "I had a concert at a medical conference in Barcelona for 2,000 people canceled, that's when the survival instinct started working."
