The COVID-19 pandemic has essentially shut down the Indianapolis music scene, including a popular performance series at Eskenazi Hospital. The Marianne Tobias Music Program sponsors an artist in residence, and brings musicians, from all over, to the venue to perform free concerts in the hospital lobby.
Kyle Long is the music consultant for the program. It's now on hold through May, and WFYI’s Jill Ditmire spoke with Long about the emotional impact of that loss for patients and performers.
Long also hosts the WFYI music program Cultural Manifesto.
