Isreali-Italian Soprano Nofar Yacobi has created a new non-profit Musical Solidarity Project – COVID-19: a global act of solidarity and hope through music. Singers, instrumentalists, world class soloists, orchestra players, music students and even passionate amateurs from all over the world will join for a virtual performance of Verdi’s “Va pensiero” from Nabucco. One of the most symbolic musical pieces of hope…
World class artists and cultural institutions alike are invited to be part of this project: performers can join by sending their videos, and institutions can join by acknowledging the importance of their mission and joining their Official Solidarity Supporters list. Since we are all confined to our homes now, each artist will submit a self video-recording on their smartphone, singing/playing their part.
Yacobi believes since this crisis is global – the response should be global too.
Nofar Yacobi joined Marc Wigmore on The Oasis.
