Fundraising for Musicians

Picture by Melinda Modisette

Many musicians around the world are struggling in a number of ways. The dependence of a musician’s income on being able to perform in front of an audience can make life difficult even in the best of times, and with the majority of countries in lockdown, this dependence has become blatantly obvious. Luckily, many organizations are finding ways to hold these musicians afloat.

Thousands of avid amateur musicians in the past week have shared recordings of themselves playing piano on social media in support of a COVID-19 relief fund created by the MusicCares organization. With every clip, money is donated to the fund, and these donations will go towards helping those in the music industry who are unable to retain a steady income because of the coronavirus.
