Pre-Recorded Virtual Programs are streaming videos – available for use within 24-48 hours. These asynchronous programs can be shared with students who are learning remotely (in their own homes) or presented to a gathered class. Many of the artists are offering an optional 'live' meet-the-artist discussion before or after viewing the performance.

 

We also offer Live Virtual Programs.
