The music stages are quiet, but you cannot stop the creative spirit. The musicians of Central New York have been coping with the coronavirus by sharing their talents on-line.
NewsChannel 9 WSYR presents “CNY Stronger Together,” a musical celebration to bring awareness to Covid-19 relief efforts across Central New York.
The show features intimate performances from home by (in alphabetical order): Liam Alone; Boots N’ Shorts; Mark Doyle; Joe Driscoll; Irv Lyons, Jr.; Mike Powell; the Mere Mortals; Jess Novak; Edgar Pagan; and Anthony Saturno & Jamie Cunningham.
The program will also bring awareness to many of the organizations providing local coronavirus relief, including the CNY Covid-19 Community Support Fund (a partnership of the Community Foundation; the United Way; the Allyn Family Foundation; the City of Syracuse and Onondaga County); the Salvation Army; Food Bank of CNY; American Red Cross; and others.
“CNY Stronger Together” is presented in association with the Syracuse Area Music Awards. All performances are donated by the musicians as a service to the community.
