The current global pandemic is striking a new form of creativity among our musicians learning to use technology to keep the music going.

A new video release today features Andrew Wan and Jonathan Crow, Concertmasters from the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and Toronto Symphony Orchestra, in a touching virtual duo.

They interpret the 2nd movement of Sonata No. 5 in E minor for 2 violins by Jean-Marie Leclair.

In this difficult time, solidarity, friendship and music are more important than ever.

Let’s call it our ray of hope.
