Hi everyone: Between March 20 and May 31 2020, with the Covid 19 Health Crisis eliminating all my concert work, I went to work online. Over the next 73 days I streamed 67 forty to sixty minute volunteer performances on Facebook with only six nights off. Each night I did between 7 and 16 classical, blues, rock or pop originals and covers, and by June 1st I had played over 600 different tunes!!! The Second Corona Concert Series began immediately after and concluded with our 100th show on September 11, 2020. You can follow me Here to see these concerts live, and you can see the first of these series Here!!!


The most wonderful achievement in this entire endeavour was due to the effort of ALL who took part. This was the creation of the most loving, kind and generous community I have ever witnessed. People from half the countries on earth came in as strangers and left as family. Many were health care workers taking a much needed break from their heroic efforts on the front lines. Some friends came in grieving, having just lost family members to the terrible disease and others, especially some of those working in hospitals, came in suffering from Covid 19 itself. I exist to bring people together, but the gift we all received from each other surpassed anything I could have dreamt of. Thanks to EVERYONE who participated in this live music community ... We grew TOGETHER apart!!!While every single person contributed,


I have to mention three people who really helped me. My mom MeeMee, my grandson Aiden, and my wife Nechama. Each day I would call MeeMee just before the concert and she would listen, advising me and encouraging me after the concert was over. This was priceless and my gratitude and love for my mom is eternal. Aiden was also a constant presence at the shows and I am so grateful for my boy's energy and support!!! He also came up with so many great song ideas from the Elvis, Harry Potter, Ghostbusters,Trolls and Jackson Five catalogs!!!  


Finally, no-one did more than my wife Nechama. Her efforts to allow me the practice time as well as the inspiration to do my musical work were incredible, and even more so when we consider that she had just experienced a huge surgery on her back less than two weeks before we began the Concert Series. None of this would have been remotely possible without my wonderful wife and, to put it simply, I am the luckiest man in the world to be at the side of my Princess!!!  


Now, while this is the END of Part One of the Corona Concert Series, we will get together at a reduced rate as long as I am able. Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming into our living room each night to be our family. We love you!!!
