“The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra has kept busy during the shutdown, contributing to several efforts to keep families entertained,” writes Samuel Dodge in Sunday’s (5/3) (Michigan). “The orchestra’s YouTube music education series ‘Musical Minutes’ was recently broadcast by Detroit Public TV, according to a release. Patients at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, as well as their families and health care staff, have been directly provided the series, as well. The group also donated musical activity books to students in the Ypsilanti Public School District, and will be recording and sharing online their ‘KinderConcerts’ performance for the community, the release states. Their music can also be heard at the curbside pickup locations of Ann Arbor restaurants such as Mani Osteria, Isalita and Mikette.” The Ann Arbor Symphony is one of several organizations profiled in the article about “Things that give us hope amid coronavirus crisis”; others include an Ann Arbor art teacher crafting decorative PPE masks, a sandwich shop donating food to healthcare workers, and a plumbing company making N95 masks with 3D printers.
