Quarantine Concerts with Steven Feifke

steven + alexa

During this time of social distancing and stay at home orders, pianist Steven Feifke and I began live-streaming from our New York City apartment. Running over 25 weeks now, these "Quarantine Concert Series" take place every Sunday evening at 8:00PM ET. Some concerts were accompanied by a Pre-Concert Conversation where we talk about the featured composer, his/her history, and how we approach his/her music more in depth.

Concerts are $5 for entry with the opportunity to give an increased contribution. Pre-Concert Conversations are open to the public, thanks to our Platinum Sponsors (see below).

25% of proceeds each week are donated to an Arts Organization helping musicians and artists that have been impacted by the effects of COVID-19. With the help of our generous supporters, we have been able to donate over over $6,500 to COVID-19 Musicians Relief Funds and organizations supporting the Black Lives Matter Movement since quarantine began in March.
