    Why don’t you do live streaming concerts? I come every year for Handel’s Messiah, but this year we will not be able to attend due to Covid-19 restrictions.

    We would happily pay (and I know a lot that do and would) for tickets to see the concerts real-time streaming.
    Please consider this avenue to deliver your beautiful concerts to those who cannot travel to the UK
