The Corona Family

Concerts: Part Two

The Second Corona Concert Series is OVER!!! On June 3rd, 2020, the new concert series started with 7PM concerts on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with an additional "adult" concert at 9PM on the second Friday of every month. We finished on September 11th with our 33rd show of the series and our 100th show since the beginning of the Pandemic!!! 

What an amazing experience it has been!!! Every concert night between 400 and 2,500 households watched, and on almost every subsequent day I was blessed to answer over 500 comments from our Corona Family!!! The love and the community which has grown around the concerts just cannot be described in words. Not only have they supported the music, they have supported us and each other through the illnesses and deaths caused by Covid-19. On top of that, the entire Corona Family came together for Lebanon after the Beirut explosion on August 4th. I dedicated two concerts as fundraisers, and with the help of Oxfam-Quebec we raised well over $3,000 for relief efforts!!!

Although EVERYONE gave love and energy at these concerts, three people gave the most: I must thank again my beautiful wife Nechama for all her work organizing our days, inviting friends, answering requests and letting people know what I was wearing so they came to the right concert!!! I also want to express my gratitude to my wonderful mom MeeMee who took care of all the logistics when I gave concerts from Ottawa, and of course gave me musical advice after each show!!! My amazing grandson Aiden has constantly given me inspiration at the shows and I want to thank him from the bottom of my heart!!! AidenWaiden is the second theme song of our Corona Family and it is such a joy to know everyone is singing Aiden's name and praises along with his "Papa"!!!


Follow me on Facebook Here to see the Third Corona Family Concert Series when we resume in November, and come to Corona 1 Here to see the first series of these shows. Meanwhile, welcome to the warmest, most welcoming and most wonderful community ANYWHERE as you enjoy these past shows, and don't forget to dance, sing-along, comment and SHARE your favourites with your own loved ones!!! LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!
