Pocket Concerts has made its name providing “intimate, extraordinary listening experiences” with top-notch concerts in cozy settings. And now, they’re going virtual. Dubbed Pocket Concerts Live, co-directors Rory McLeod and Emily Rho have unveiled a line-up of online concerts that promise the same high-calibre performances, starting with an April 26 recital given by Canadian soprano and pianist Rachel Fenlon.
Out of her home in Berlin, Fenlon will offer up a programme of Alma Mahler, Robert Schumann, Olivier Messaien, and more.
Tickets for the event are $20 ($5 for arts and healthcare workers!). Ticket holders will receive a private YouTube the day before the broadcast. The April 26 concert starts at 10am EDT, and the link will be available for 24hrs.
It’s worth noting the presenter is committed to paying Fenlon and the other artists whose spring concerts had been canceled or postponed. Your ticket purchase will help make that happen.
