COVID-19 ARTS & CULTURE RESOURCES
In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, Musical Bridges Around the World will continue to Connect, Educate, Inspire, Break stereotypes and provide Accessibility to multicultural arts for AII! We plan to continue by shifting our programs to online platforms in the following ways:
Musical Sprouts – Make its elementary-level curriculum fully available online for parents and children from any school district! We want to address urgent needs as schools and teachers seek to adjust to this new environment.
Musical Evenings at San Fernando Cathedral – Broadcast concerts on their originally-planned dates online to Facebook, Youtube and our website, allowing audiences to enjoy performances from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Expect something very unique!
The Gurwitz 2020 International Piano Competition – Rebroadcast the inaugural competition for all to enjoy!
MBAW Art Gallery – Offer an interactive virtual tour of the current exhibition, allowing viewers to experience the gallery guided by the artist in partnership with Unfiltered SA and Glasstire!
Golden Age – Investigating the possibility to deliver this program by broadcasting performances to our retirement communities, engaging our respected seniors!
Please find an additional list of other resources to help, supplement, and support arts & culture at the city, state, national, and international level. We are also compiling a list of live-streaming outlets, online classes, and other virtual experiences.
