Artists Performing in Quarantine Bring Joy and Optimism

In a time of crisis, artists performing in quarantine are bringing people together and giving us a sense of joy and optimism. Monday, we blogged about how hard the COVID-19 crisis is hitting the arts. Yet artists of all kinds are using the Internet in innovative ways to bring joy to the world and bring people together.

Artists Stream From Their Homes

At least since late March, artists performing in quarantine have been live-streaming and posting performances from their homes, including  multi-artist ensembles of theater, music and even dance. Many do so with uncertain incomes and futures. Yet they play on – for us. For all of us. Some have even turned their quarantine performances into fundraisers.

These artists deserve real and virtual applause and thanks from their audiences. Take a break from your day – especially if you’re feeling blue, lonely or stir crazy – and take in some of these free, streaming performances. And if you have the means, support the artists and organizations who bless us with their superb skill and artistry by making a donation (if they provide a link).
