Quarantine Concerts keep you relaxed and entertained with musicians from around the world, while offering you a chance to help out some out-of-work performers, who suddenly find their concert hall engagements non-existent.
Barbora Kolářova, Artistic Director of the Lake George Music Festival, tells Spotlight producer Paul Larson how she generated the idea for Quarantine Concerts, which feature Festival alumni performing for an online audience.
Listening is free, but, should you choose, you are able to make tax-deductable donations during the music events. 100% of the proceeds generated from these concerts will be given back to the performing artists in this time of need. Donations of any amount will be particularly impactful at this trying time.
In addition, everyone who gives towards this campaign will be given a FREE single ticket to a Festival concert this August and will be automatically entered into a drawing for a FREE 2020 Season Pass.
