Concerned about the advance of the coronoavirus in many parts of the world, pianist Fred Hersch has announced his approach to providing, if not relief from the threat, a way to get it off your mind for a while.

Mini Concert Every Day
I hope everybody is safe and healthy and will remain that way. This is an unprecedented challenge to everyone on the planet and we all need resilience and resourcefulness going forward.
Starting this Sunday, every day at 1pm EST,10am PST, 7pm in Europe I will do a live mini concert of piano music from my home.
You can see and hear the concert here:
You don’t have to “be” on Facebook or sign in to anything to access the concert. Just click the image below. And if you “like” the page you will be notified each day.
Wishing you all strength and much love,
