Rolling with the punches amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, arts nonprofit and show space Timucua Arts Foundation
has announced a new season of in-house music livestreams. And, unlike the archival streaming content they've been broadcasting since March, these performances will be brand-new and filmed live at Timucua on the day, although with no audience.
"We’re looking for ways to be a resource in these difficult times. To that end, although we’re sadly keeping our doors closed to the public for the next several months, we’re welcoming local and visiting musicians to our stage, whom we’ve been scheduling for a while," said Benoit Glazer, Timucua artistic director. "Our goal is to ensure the safest health safety protocols for everyone involved, while continuing to do what we do, with your support: to put on a good show for you."
With one show per month currently planned, stretching from August through December, the programming on offer combines local and out-of-town talent for an eclectic mix of styles. Additionally, these shows are ticketed events to raise some much-needed revenue for these performing musicians.
