What Did BONJ Accomplish During COVID?



BONJ Accomplished a Lot During COVID



As we move forward and return to live in-person events, it's important to reflect on the past eighteen months.

It was truly a challenging time.

 We are grateful that you have stayed with us, connected with us, shared with us our music and our lives.

We remained active during the pandemic and did our best to provide opportunities for artists and audience to come together through the magic of great music.

In April, we created a collaborative performance of Variations on Simple Gifts with Keys 2 Success, a performance premiered live at our July 18, 2021 concert.

Throughout the year, Maestro Butts created and presented Bach, Bagels, and Bob, his popular internet show which brought artists and audience closer together.

For the 2020 Summer Music Festival, the orchestra presented four virtual concerts featuring orchestra musicians, guest artists, and music from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern eras.

In November, the orchestra presented a virtual opening concert for a virtual year.

In June, a special Spring Music Festival presented three virtual concerts in formats similar to the 2020 Summer Music Festival.
