Jazz concert 'Songbook' quickly switches to online performance Updated: 2020-08-29 09:34:11 KST

Jazz music fills the whole stage, but there's no audience present to hear it except for a few cameras.

"COVID-19 has stopped the show from being performed in front of a live audience. Instead, it was broadcast live online for fans to enjoy at home on the Naver TV channel."

"As COVID-19 started in January our shows scheduled in April, May and June were all changed to Naver TV live broadcast. I believe our experience and know-how made it possible to quickly change August's show to an online format right after the virus started spreading fast."

This show titled 'Songbook', played by well-known jazz artists Yun Suk-cheol Trio, is a part of Gwangmyeong Cultural Foundation's Jazz concerts that are held in the last week of every month.
The artists say although it is unfortunate not to be able to see fans in person, they are still glad to communicate with fans online.
Their song picks show how much they want to soothe people's minds.

"Since there was a big typhoon, I selected the song 'Gentle Wind' hoping there wouldn't be many people severely affected. The song 'I hear the ocean' was also played to let people who couldn't go on their summer vacations feel as if they were enjoying the sea."

The artists' and production team's quick collaboration allow the audience to enjoy the performance safely amid the current outbreak.
