The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, forced to cancel February concerts by the coronavirus outbreak, has posted home-made videos on their WeChat account to keep subscribers engaged.
The musicians, wearing ordinary clothes, have sent out this message: ‘We firmly believe that the epidemic will eventually pass. Love and hope always spread faster than viruses’.
Leonard Bernstein once said “Music can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable” 🎵
During this difficult time with the #coronavirus epidemic, SSO musicians have spontaneously filmed performances at home, some with family members, to fight together.
