Alberta musicians have flocked to Facebook Live and YouTube to connect with audiences during COVID-19. Along with jazz and singer-songwriters, Alberta’s Classical community has also turned to online streaming this spring.
After more than a decade of hosting live shows Calgary’s Mountain View Connection Concert Series has gone virtual. Kathleen Van Mourik is artistic director of the International Festival of Song and Chamber Music Society and recently spoke with Lisa Wilton:
New performances are presented by the Mountain View Festival every Thursday. Their next Isolation Point Virtual Concert premiers Thursday May 21st at 7:00 PM MT. It features two talented Calgary-based classical musicians, Hannah Pagenkopf (Soprano) and Susan Varcoe (Piano).
Watch the performance on the Mountain View Festival website.
