As the dangers of the COVID-19 virus become more apparent and we are forced to stay inside, the economic damage that has already begun to happen is undeniable. Some of the most affected are small business owners and those in the service industry, as well as our heroes of the music industry who are having to cancel their gigs with very uncertain futures ahead.

We know the profound healing abilities of music can keep our spirits high at this time, so I have compiled a list of past and future live streams, plus streaming concert series and Facebook groups where musicians can apply to perform. Consider donating to these musicians or artists in this difficult time, or share this article so more may see the opportunity.
