COVID-19 has changed so many aspects of our lives, and the music and entertainment industry has taken a serious hit.  While music is still being created, viewed and streamed online, gathering together to enjoy the presentation "up close and personal" has ceased for the time being.   By all means, keep supporting your favourite artists and search out new ones online.  For now, that is the stage that is available, and there are fantastic and creative ways to sustain them.  Thank you for being a lover of music, we love being a part of this industry and bringing music to the world.
