With the impact of COVID-19 being felt around the globe, its become even more clear that music is something we all need at this time – and while we can’t gather together for performances, the classical music world is moving online as quickly as possible!
So we wanted to pull together some of our top picks for where to catch some brilliant performances online during this time.
Berlin Philharmonic Digital Concert Hall
One of the world’s most beloved classical music institutions has a 30 day free trial available of their Digital Concert Hall. With that 30 day trial, you have access to hundreds of hours of music and live performances that you can enjoy!
You do have to sign up for the 30 day free trial.
The Los Angeles Philharmonic has made itself an orchestra in a class of its own. Their LA Phil Watch and Listen is always available and always free – they’ve got everything from concerts to interviews and more!
The Met’s HD Broadcasts changed the game over a decade ago – and now they’re bringing you an HD Broadcast everyday on their website. They announce their weekly line up the week before, and the videos are live on their website for 24hrs.
Saskatoon Public Library – Naxos Music Library
Here’s something very special for folks with a library card!
You can sign on to the Saskatoon Public Library’s Digital Library Resources and with that you have full access to the Naxos Classical Music Library – it’s one of the largest online streaming systems and brings you a remarkable wealth of things to listen to!
