Summer Air


Music is in the summer air, and that air is more likely outdoors, because that’s where that pesky COVID virus is less likely to spread. Yes, the nasty little bug (actually, a submicroscopic infectious clump of protein and smaller than any bug) is still around. Being vaccinated doesn’t mean you can’t still catch it or spread it, but being fully vaccinated does mean you’re less likely to get sick, and if you do get sick, more likely that you’ll be far less sick. 99.99 doctors out of a hundred say so, so take their word. Likewise for masking in close quarters.

Okay then. Now we can get out there and enjoy the summer music season. Let's go!
