Fri 5/8 @ 8-9:30PM
Unlike most of Cleveland’s other major festivals, which likely won’t see at 2020 edition, Brite Winter actually happened. Both that outdoor Flats arts festival and the Slovenian welcome-spring Kurentovanje festival landed on February 24 when the pandemic was a distant rumor and most of us never heard the term “COVID-19.”
But the organizers of Brite Winter are thinking a lot about the local musicians community who form the backbone of their even, and how the area’s freelance musicians have lost most or all of their income and opportunities to perform.
They’ve launched a series of online concerts called Virtual Shows CLE to help keep musicians in front of an audience and maybe even raise some donations. “We’re here to spread the joy of music and provide local musicians a platform to perform virtually to their audiences and community, all while keeping everyone safe and at home,” they say.
On Friday May 8, three area musicians — pianist/vocalist Mike Petrone, Nathan Hedges of Cities & Coasts, and Megan Sullivan — will perform in an “in the round” format.
