Remember the experience of venturing out of your home to see your favorite band perform in the haze of a local club or the expanse of a downtown theater? Those days may seem like dreams, but, faced with the challenges of a global pandemic, these Twin Cities musicians move their performances out of the venue and onto the veranda, or at least into their backyards. Made possible by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and the citizens of Minnesota, Pandemic Performances is a new Twin Cities PBS digital mini-series featuring local artists performing new, past and experimental work.
