Socially Distant and Thoroughly Entertained

May 28th, 2020

Who knew staying home could be this much fun...

Stay entertained with opera

Your puzzles have all been completed, you’ve watched everything on Netflix, and there’s only so much more of the neighborhood you can walk through … let us help you find some fresh entertainment, won’t you?


Load your lap with your favorite candies, sodas, and heavily buttered popcorn for a night at the movies. Both the Byrd Theatre and Ashland Theatre are selling “tickets” to their newest releases – enjoyed straight from the living room.

Opera fans? The New York Metropolitan Opera is streaming some of their finest performances for free: a new opera every day, available for 23 hours at a time.


Change from slippers to cowboy boots and head to Texas for some live music straight from Austin City Limits.

Or head to Nashville for a regular stream of hand-selected live music.

While you’re in Music City, USA, check out the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Or mosey on over to the Grand Ole Opry for a concert every Saturday night at 7 p.m.

But if you’re feeling indecisive, here’s a list of basically every upcoming virtual concert … like, ever again. Thank you, NPR.

Fancy some other ways to keep yourself virtually amused? Try…
