*February 2021 Update from Brad Guhr, Prairie Window Concert Series Coordinator
To say that our social lives and leisure activities have been disrupted over the last 11 months is an understatement. Nowhere is that impact felt more than in the live music business. Touring artists and concert venues have been stuck in a holding pattern with their main source of income from live shows devastated.
In early March 2020 when COVID-19 hit, we were about ready to announce the Prairie Window Concert Series (PWCS) eight-show lineup for 2020-2021. Since then, that excitement has had to be tempered and turned into hopefulness, looking forward to the day when we can safely gather again indoors to enjoy live music. With vaccines being rolled out, we look forward to herd immunity great anticipation. We are hopeful that our series with live shows will be able to safely return to action in October of 2021. Until then, the excitement for live music continues to build!
Rescheduling and establishing new tentative dates for at least eight and possibly up to 10 shows is nearly complete. Once it feels safe to sign contracts and proceed with plans (hopefully by July), you (our season ticketholders and underwriters) will be the first to know the details of this new 2020-21 schedule. As a reminder, it will include the two postponed shows from last season (DALA and Jeffrey Foucault) for which you already have tickets.
To keep your juices flowing for live music at the PWCS, enjoy below a clip from each of the artists we look forward to presenting to you in the near future. Go to their respective websites, buy their music, pay for their livestreams and donate as you feel you can. Help them survive until they can return to live music income again. Thank you.
