Armchair Journeys

One evening while listening to the Gewandhaus Orchestra online, I realized that we could help make your days a little brighter by presenting art discussions similar to what we do on our travel journeys. And because we are all sequestered, many musicians and teachers are now out of work due to canceled concerts and events.

 

So to give you something to do and to help artists during this unprecedented time, Artful Journeys has assembled some of our faculty to enliven your senses and help you through the barriers of isolation. Thanks to technology such as Zoom, we are able to bring these presentations into your home.
