During the spring of 2020, after we cancelled events, we transformed our Music in the Schools education program into Music in the Homes.
This program led to the creation of videos for our YouTube page that families could access for in-depth music and instrument exploration from our musicians. Some musicians also joined live-streamed classrooms to perform and answer questions about music and their instruments.
As the weather became less conducive to outside events, we were able to arrange for an at-home performance of Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride. Fifty musicians participated in this project, which came together quickly to debut on Christmas Day on our YouTube channel and social media.
