We’re all in this together and trying to help in any way that we can. This regularly updated page is a compilation of upcoming and archived live-stream listings which we encourage everyone to share.
We want to help you and your fellow musicians to reach as wider audience as possible but also need to avoid the listings becoming unmanageable. Therefore, the focus is upon performances by Larsen Strings Artists and other musician(s) worldwide, who play our strings. This page will also update with giveaways, in partnership with Larsen Strings Artists, and other promotions. Let us know if you have an event planned and we will do our best to promote via this page and our other media. We couldn’t do it without you.
Please notify us via Facebook
Let us know if you have more. Scheduled live streams, video and archived performances. Update 9 July.
