PiP Virtual Events during the Covid Concert Gap


With “normal” concert-going on hold because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Midori has reached out to current and past recipients of PiP (Partners in Performance) grants – members of the PiP family, so-to-speak – with an offer of virtual events for their subscriber and ticket-holder communities.

These events have included a virtual recital with pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute (a pre-recorded performance video consisting of sonatas by Grieg and Franck, some followed by live Q&A sessions), talking program notes (live presentations followed by Q&As with attendees), masterclasses and Inclusion/Advocacy workshops (live presentations by Midori followed by open discussions with panelists or participants).

To date, these PiP Virtual Events have taken place in Dawson, Minnesota; Ridgecrest, California; Indialantic, Florida; Honolulu, Hawaii; Warm Springs, Virginia; Rockport, Maine; Corrales, New Mexico; Paonia Colorado; and Charleston, South Carolina.
