The Quarantine Concerts

The Quarantine Concerts are a live stream concert series and collaborative endeavor among a growing number of Chicago-based organizations and organizers meant to provide artists experimenting across genres a space to share their work and continue to earn a living during this time when most live performance opportunities have been cancelled due to COVID-19.

We have been inspired by the proliferation of creativity and community building that we have seen burst forth online in the immediate wake of the emerging COVID-19 situation, and aim through this platform to play a part in helping to centralize those efforts, getting more eyes, ears, and hopefully donations to each artist’s efforts. While the series is Chicago-based, it is not necessarily Chicago-centered, and will feature an exciting diversity of artists from the broader experimental music, art, and dance communities in both the US and the world. The Quarantine Concerts project was initiated by curators and musicians Daniel Wyche (Elastro Electro-Acoustic Series at Elastic Arts), Ben Billington (Resonance Series at the Hideout), Carrie Cooper (Dark Matter Coffee, Ithaca Underground), Elastic Arts, and Experimental Sound Studio, which is serving as the central administrative collective for the project. Additional partners are added each day, with a full list available on the main website.
