Coronavirus Update – March 2020


Drake Music COVID-19 Update

With the wellbeing of our team, artists, participants and partners in mind and following the latest advice from the Government, Drake Music has put all projects which involve direct, face-to-face contact on hold including teaching and events.

Our work is of and with the Disabled community, many of whom will face additional risk during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We have taken the decision to prioritise the wellbeing of our staff and participants and put work on hold so that we are not placing people at risk. We will commit to rescheduling or reconfiguring as much of our activities as possible, but some disruption will be unavoidable.

These are uncertain times, but we are working hard to try and create ways in which we can still support and join with our wider community remotely. We will work internally and also link up with our colleagues across music and the arts to support musicians and artists. We will keep you informed about this via our website and social media.

Community and connection will be increasingly important as we practice social distancing and/or self-isolation and we think music could provide a shared experience around which we can come together.

Practical Info

The Drake Music core team will be working remotely and contactable via their usual email addresses. You can find details of the DM team here.

Please stay safe, take care of yourselves and those around you. We will keep sharing our progress and trying to find accessible ways to support our community through this difficult time.
