tip #3: Music from home by Music Traveler

A step towards income for musicians via home concerts. The platform Music Traveler was founded with the help of the Karajan Institute and has an impressive list of ambassadors: Janine Jansen, John Malkovich, Yuja Wang, Hans Zimmer, and many more... "During the Coronavirus pandemic, many musicians are left without an income. With your help and the help of the Karajan Institute, we want to build the feature “Music From Home”, on Music Traveler, where we help musicians to sell tickets for their performances live streamed from their home."
