AMIS has transitioned its monthly musical instrument calendar into a weekly schedule of virtual events that focus on musical instruments during the global shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this period, there are still many livestream performances, tours and lectures at museums, and archive recording releases.
**This blog is taking a break in August of 2020. At the end of the month we will reevaluate whether enough organological events have come back in either physical or digital forms to continue this feature.
In the meantime, you may want to check out some of these instrument related programs this week!
