“The Coronavirus (COVID-19) global crisis has changed all of our lives drastically and has shut down every performing arts institution and venue we artists call our homes …” event organizer Jan Vogler has this week told The Violin Channel.
“While practicing at home on the Upper West Side, I realised that we can all contribute something during this fight against this pandemic … we will all unite to send a musical message of courage, empathy, friendship, hope and love from New York to the entire world,’ he has said.
