In addition to the beautiful afternoon of 15-minute "micro concerts" curated by the Newport String Project, a number of other organizations have tried over the past year of Covid restrictions to experiment with maintaining a sense of connection with their audience through live music-making. I'll list a few examples that I'm aware of, and I'm sure that there are many more. Will any of these experiments continue, learn from each other, iterate, become mainstreamed as standard practice?
