It is a shame it has to be done virtually, but it is better safe than sorry and still a great opportunity for the artists.

One of our local high schools recently had a wrestling event which was cancelled last year.  However, this year, they moved it outside, and made sure everyone was tested.

It sounds like this would have been a fun event to attend, too bad covid has made it become a virtual event.

Roy Kelley - I sure hope your state starts having live concerts soon! I can't believe  you're still in lock-down virtual mode. At this rate, your economy and the people will continue to suffer. People need people. Musicians need to play in front of a live audience. If people have to live like your living in your state, nobody can or will survive in a healthy environment. If we all continue to live in a bubble our immunities will be gone forever.
