On A Positive Note: Going Live - and Online - at National Sawdust

Caroline Tompkins

When the staff at National Sawdust, a music presenter and venue in Brooklyn, began to look through its archives for material to share with its audience shut in, stressed and concerned over the Covid-19 Coronavirus, they began to focus on themes they felt would be very helpful, such as wellness and joy. They are now sharing them online through Live at National Sawdust. Artistic Director Paolo Prestini discusses this project and a newly funded expansion called Digital Discovery Festival that will enable the venue to pay musicians for live stream performances and commission new works.
