UNITE is a growing collaborative led by Tim Shriver and people from all walks of life, dedicated to addressing universal challenges we can only solve together through inspiration On Demand.
Playing For Change is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music. The idea for this project came from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.
The Metropolitan Opera
Every day for the duration of the Met’s closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, a different encore presentation from the company’s Live in HD series will be made available for free streaming on the Met website, with each performance available for a period of 20 hours, from 7:30 p.m. EDT until 3:30 p.m. the following day. The schedule will include outstanding complete performances from the past 14 years of cinema transmissions, starring all of opera’s greatest singers.
From de 20th to the 29th March, the Instagram account will be broadcasting 5 shows a day, 30min each show, happening everyday from 19h to 21h30 (GMT-3). Each artist will perform live from their home, showcasing it on their Instagram page. Names such as Michel Teló, Sandy, Maneva, Guga Nandes, Juan Marcos & Vinícios and many others, will be part of the free initiative to keep us all entertained at home.
