Artists Staying Connected Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

Mar 26, 2020

Ongoing response to the coronavirus pandemic has largely brought Southwest Florida’s arts and culture offerings to a grinding halt. Still, local artists practicing social distancing and self-isolation are doing what they can to keep performing and stay connected through social media.

We’ll meet actors Brendan Powers and Rachel Burttram with the Florida Repertory Theatre who are live streaming theatre performances from their home on Facebook.  We’ll also catch up with Southwest Florida-based singer/songwriters Kyle Anne and Claire Liparulo who have also been staying connected with fans through live-streamed performances. We’ll explore the innovative ways these artists are coping and how patrons, also stuck in their homes, can help.
