Impact of COVID-19

The music industry, like all other arts sectors, has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many music events, such as festivals and concerts have either been cancelled or postponed. While some musicians and composers have used this time to create new works, the cancellation of events has had a ripple effect on many people – performers who depend on live events for their livelihood, as well as concert goers who desire live music as a pastime.

Cellography was not spared. Cellography was in the midst of preparing for its concert in 2020 when COVID-19 hits. This led to the concert cancellation and forfeiture of theatre hall booking deposit. It was a tough and challenging period for many, particularly for a small and private orchestra group.         

 

Post-pandemic

After the COVID-19 pandemic, many people were eager to attend concerts and live events again, as a way to make up for lost time and experiences. This phenomenon has been dubbed as “revenge concert-going”. People are flocking to concerts and music festivals, eager to enjoy live music and the sense of community that comes with it. The pent-up demand for live entertainment has led to a surge in ticket sales and concert attendance. Many artists and performers are also eager to get back on stage and connect with their fans, making for a vibrant and exciting atmosphere at these events.

Attending concerts with friends or as a whole family can be a great bonding experience. It provides an opportunity for everyone to share a common interest and create lasting memories together. Concerts offer a chance for people to spend quality time together, away from the distractions of daily life. The shared experience of enjoying live music can strengthen relationships and create a sense of unity. Additionally, concerts can expose individuals to different genres of music and cultures, broadening their horizons and fostering an appreciation for the arts.
