Connecting Communities in the New Normal

Staying connected with each other through music has gotten a very different meaning since 2020. We ask the thought leaders on our panels how they are connecting their communities and learn about their initiatives. Heri Shin has launched a series of concerts streamed from the empty bars of Berlin. James McAulay has led his startup and community of 'on-demand' musicians through a pivot. Tahlia Petrosian and Alex Olegnowicz have pioneered a new livestreaming format where the artists are interacting with the audience via chat.
