As the quarantine was entering its second month in NYC, local musicians came up with an idea to create a musical response to the nightly 7 p.m. “cheer” that had been organized for essential workers in New York. The result was an experimental composition that was performed on April 29th from windows and rooftops from across the city, by musicians of all ages and abilities, all while observing social distancing. A cut of the final video is now available at www.tenthintervention.com/
