Dear Friends,

I hope you are staying well and feeling safe. As we all face the uncertain time ahead, it has been incredible to see how supportive our communities are, offering help to each other to get through this challenging time. Up to now, I have had to cancel 24 concerts and 12 masterclass/artist residences up to the end of August. In order to continue connecting musically with my friends and fans, I found wonderful new outlets through weekly live streaming. Saturday Live with Ching-Yun was created in mid-April, and ever since my first experience at live stream for the Violin Channel, for the past eight weeks, I have delivered eclectic programming every Saturday to cover a variety of musical genre. It has been so wonderful connecting with people across the world in this fashion.

If you haven’t visited Saturday Live with Ching-Yun, you can discover the previous episode on my Facebook Page: Ching-Yun 胡瀞云. Here’s a recap of previous episodes:

Sincerely yours,

Ching-Yun 胡瀞云
