For decades, Southminster United, which is on Aylmer Avenue in Old Ottawa South, has presented perfectly attended, admission-by-donation live shows on Wednesdays at noon. Graham’s sequence was curtailed this month, as have been public musical performances all over the earth, by the pandemic, and freelance musicians in Ottawa and past have found their incomes plummet.
Graham is seeking musicians of all genres capable of livestreaming solo concerts of up to an hour from their houses on Wednesdays at noon. The concerts will shell out around $250, explained Graham, including that he is doing work on a new financial design for his collection. Past week, he offered on his series’s Facebook page a livestreamed live performance at the church by Ottawa guitarist Andrew Mah and violinist Anna Baksheeva. Their concert received much more than 5,000 sights, and donations exceeded anticipations.
