At first it was chaos. We were awash with cancellations, refunds, nasty remarks about anything and everything. A large Broadway show was here when the panic started. Now that we are getting accustomed to working from home and refocusing priorities, we’re lucky to be a large arts organization with enough cashflow not to layoff employees. Audiece engagement is taking a different form through curated Spotify playlists, videos from teaching artists and more. I hope to continue this “at home” focus after the pandemic is over, but my cynical side knows it will not be possible without more staff. Coping through music, high vibration, and knowing that the arts aren’t going anywhere.
