Admission Information

The Coronavirus Crisis has changed our lives, and we are in the midst of a long period without concerts as we knew them. In addition to the problem of large audiences, the regulations also make it "virtually" impossible for musicians to get together, rehearse, or perform. However, many technologies and solutions are available, helping us to find new ways of collaborating and transporting our work to audiences.  We have been programming, testing, and rehearsing in an online environment between California, which is facing a "shelter-in-place" situation, Berlin (DE) with strict "Kontakt- und Ausgangsbeschränkungen", and Ghent (BE). Each Saturday, we are presenting a concert that connects six musicians from these locations with different guests each week. The sessions are broadcast live with audio and video feeds from each site. | Livestream at CCRMA Live
