Both Sides Now: Live Performance in the Post-Pandemic World".
City of Kingston Arts Council ADAPT Grant project recipient.

"Both Sides Now offers a professional theatre-style live music performance in a hybrid (in-person and virtual) model. This project aims to address the need for quality professional live music and performances in small to mid-size venues to be accessible, regardless of in-person restrictions. The goal of this project is to take virtual live performance from being a backup option to an additional option; as the need and want for live digital content has continued to increase throughout the pandemic, our goal isto make the online experience a uniquely, and equally, engaging and valuable experience on its own.

This concert is the culmination of the research for the Both Sides Now project.
