Our region has an eclectic and vibrant music scene, and coming together to perform or take in live music is something we typically enjoy year round. This year is anything but typical. In-person music events and performances are cancelled, and musicians are socially distant from one another. On The Point, we hear how the pandemic is impacting local musicians, and sample works of just a few of our regions talented musicians.

 

 

In order of appearance, the musicians are as follows: 

 

Diana DiGioia

 

Crooked Coast

 

Tianna Esperanza

 

Bert Jackson

 

Cape Harmony

 

Celtic Roots

 

Bart Weisman Smooth Jazz

 

Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra

 

Alex Brewer
