What started as a necessity at the beginning of the pandemic, the only option for continuing some semblance of programming, has become one of my favorite things to do. Interviewing artists from their homes and sharing some of their work, usually performed in the most intimate and authentic ways, has added a new dimension to the performing arts.
Even as light emerges at the end of the tunnel, the struggle to stand up the arts sector, post-pandemic, is merely beginning.
In 2019, Rosanne Cash made her 2nd appearance at The Soraya, performing from her latest album, She Remembers Everything, with husband and collaborator, John Leventhal. One of the country’s pre-eminent singer-songwriters, Cash has released 15 albums of extraordinary songs that have earned four Grammy Awards and nominations for 11 more.
Following our 10th Anniversary online celebration last month, The Soraya team took a moment to exhale and regroup.
Parties, preparations, and observances – December can be such a busy month. This year, the world will observe the holidays and New Year in a quieter manner.
