Music has always been one of humanity’s most vital ways of sharing emotions such as hope, inspiration, peace and joy. While it’s probably going to be a while before we see dozens of classical musicians sitting down right next to each other to deliver a glorious orchestral performance, the wonders of technology and the internet have allowed musicians to unite and spread happiness through the power of music. Albeit at an appropriate social distance.
Here are three glorious social distanced performances that are well worth watching this week.
Amazing Grace by the Johannesburg and KZN Philharmonic Orchestras
A Bolero by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra
An ‘isolation Odyssey’ by the UK’s Opera North
