A message from Yoko: “I can’t even remember the last time I wasn’t performing somewhere on a Friday night. During these stressful times, I thought I would try to create a sense of normalcy for my fans – and for me – by continuing to perform. Last Friday I decided to play on Facebook Live and got such an overwhelming response that I decided to do so again on Saturday night. Unlike regular videos, where you can do several takes, live video has the energy of being in the moment which is vital to jazz. I will continue to do live streamed solo piano performances from my home studio in Boston on Friday and Saturday nights at 9 PM ET until my audiences and I can meet again in person. I hope this will bring joy to listeners during these difficult times and that everyone stays safe and healthy.”
You can watch the live stream at https://www.facebook.com/yokomiwapiano even if you don’t have a Facebook account. (Facebook tries to make you log in but if you look at the bottom of the window where it asks you to log in, you can click on the words “Not Now” (in small print) and then you can watch the video.) Stay safe and enjoy!
