Like many in the music business, Gina Seashore has missed performing in front of a live audience.
This summer, the musician, teacher and director of the Ramona Community Singers turned to a support group run by Musicians Without Borders to help her cope with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on her profession.
“I missed the live stuff, I’d lost some work. I looked at all these really sad faces on the Zoom call,” Seashore said about that first meeting.
But the group taught her something she took to heart: In bad times, you need to get creative and to stop grieving about the way things used to be.
That lesson culminated in a “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” a virtual concert by the Ramona Community Singers and Ramona musicians that will be streamed live on YouTube at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 13.
