According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are over 187,000 professional musicians in the United States. Imagine how many there are around the world. Most of these musicians have been ordered to shelter in place and have lost their ability to earn a living. Even so, many are finding ways to make this terrible situation more bearable for the rest of us by giving us beautiful and meaningful music through online concerts, recitals, and online instruction.
Online performances and streaming from their living rooms won't pay the bills, though. But you can help.
MusicalOverture.com is providing any musician a free space in which to create a personal page, upload videos, chat with fans, and - perhaps most importantly - receive tips from the people who love their music. Venmo, PayPal, Amazon Smile, Patreon, and CashApp are all supported and 100% of the funds go directly into the musicians' digital wallet - Musical Overture doesn't keep a penny of it.
If music is important to you, then the people who make the music are important, too. Performers, composers, and music teachers need our financial support. Let them know about this opportunity on MusicalOverture.com and let's show them our support and gratitude for making our lives more beautiful today and every day.
