Our musical colleagues have been compiling selections of free resources. In these unprecedented times, music and the arts will be more important than ever and many artists are finding innovative ways to share their work. Although these aren't Wiltshire-specific, I hope they will be a welcome source of entertainment to you all.

Thanks to our colleagues at Gramophone Magazine, Choir & Organ, Classical Music, Opera Now, and International Piano, music fans will have plenty to occupy themselves over the coming weeks.

The staff at Gramophone have been keeping their guide updated daily: https://www.gramophone.co.uk/classical-music-news/article/the-music-plays-on-online-streamed-concerts-and-opera-guide

And also posting videos by artists here: https://www.gramophone.co.uk/classical-music-news/article/artists-in-isolation-enjoy-performances-by-musicians-from-around-the-world-via-twitter-instagram-and-facebook

Classic Music has also been updating a selection of resources on its website: https://www.rhinegold.co.uk/classical_music/classical-music-goes-digital/

Choir & Organ has been doing something similar , including joining a choir from your living room: https://www.rhinegold.co.uk/choir_organ/coronavirus-updates-stay-musically-connected/

International Piano events have been compiled here: https://www.rhinegold.co.uk/international_piano/pianists-reach-out-to-audiences-online/

Opera Now has been compiling a ‘How to watch opera at home’ page on its online news site. A lot of major international opera houses and festivals that have had to close their doors are now streaming archival content for free – much of it is excellent: https://www.rhinegold.co.uk/opera_now/how-to-watch-opera-at-home/
