Many of us are hurting in a multitude of ways as a result of this crisis, both personally and professionally. Almost all of us have experienced extreme loss from this pandemic - including performance, teaching opportunities, and a sense of our community. We are so inspired by how resilient and strong you are and take some comfort seeing all of the ways you’ve been charging forward already; continuing to create art, keeping your lessons going, reaching out to audiences, and to each other. Please see below, a list of resources that we have compiled for you, and hope will help to further support you through this.
