MC35- Celebrating 2020

From Executive Director Susan Scott

Dear Friends,

Are you feeling a change in the country?

Things do feel different now, don’t they? – Or they’re beginning to.
Despite the terrible surge in cases, the imminent distribution of vaccines means recovery is on the way along with live everything, including live music. We have moved/are moving into a new and long(ish) recovery phase.

When we launched Music Connects in March – 34 long weeks ago – we did not set out to create a “soundtrack” of or for the pandemic, yet I think somehow we did – and you were part of it. “Community” and the importance of individual right action features strong along with sensational music, of course.

However you perceive it, I love this musical record of the past 34 weeks and hope you enjoy the celebration of the wonderful artists featured. I hope the 13-minute video feels like a musical journey and that you love the ride.

Watch for Beethoven’s Birthday Sonata next week and a special Christmas carol from Nuvi around the 18th.

With a nod to Winston, stay calm and carry on … safely … joyfully if you can.

Happy, happy holidays from all of us at the Festival.
