Physical distancing is having a profound impact on the ability of musicians to perform for their fans and audiences.  Many have taken to the Internet to stream concerts from their own homes, using platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Zoom.

Grand Music Live has ventured safely into this physically-challenged world, and we think you'll enjoy catching your favourite regional bands, artists and ensembles in our @HOME series.
