    It’s a lot like a virtual house concert – an intimate performance on Zoom followed by a talk-back Q&A session. I’ve found it’s a really fun way to connect with the music, the musicians and a community of music fans around the world. And while we’re not all together in one place, the participation in a performance while it is happening live brings something special to the experience. Booking closes 60 minutes before the start of concert to allow time to process payments and send passwords.
