THE ITALIANS HAVE IT RIGHT! Despite their hardship, they are connecting through their isolation by singing from their balconies in a remarkable show of spirit and resilience during this global catastrophe.
Yo-Yo Ma and the Silkroad collective in its 20th Anniversary season is also continuing to connect us through music. Silkroad’s merry band of global musicians have come together to develop a VIRTUAL CONCERT MINI-SERIES! Starting this week, Silkroad artists will be sharing short, musical performances on Facebook and Instagram — bringing music of comfort and joy directly from their homes into yours!
Below you will find a preliminary schedule, with the opportunity for more dates to be added. You’re invited to gather around your computers or smartphones and take part in an online watch party with friends and strangers from all corners of the world. Following the live stream, videos will be posted to Silkroad’s website for later viewing.

The 2020 BOSTON POPS have been forced to cancel by Covid-19. Not since 1890 has the BOSTON POPS cancelled a season, the second time in its 135 year history! The coronavirus pandemic has pre-empted a particularly notable season for Keith Lockhart: his 25th Anniversary as Pops conductor. Below is a message from the maestro himself:
No word yet on the “Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular “on July 4th or the 2020 Tanglewood season this summer, but those decisions and announcements are expected mid-May.
Keith, we love you, and thank you for 25 years of wonderful music. I still remember sitting with your parents at your debut performance as our POPS conductor, and later reporting live for WBZ -TV on the 11 o’clock news on that first night you picked up the baton in Symphony Hall. I can’t wait to celebrate a quarter century with you in 2021. For now, stay safe and well with your family and the whole extended family at Symphony Hall!
