Live Music Post Covid
Mainly Mozart was the first performing arts organization to perform live music to a live audience in a post Covid world in the summer of 2020. The first drive in concerts were emotional for me as well as the musicians and the audience. There’s something magical about being in the energy of live performance art, feeling the vibe of the energy of the crowd and the electricity of the music. People honked in appreciation, some had tears streaming down their faces. I definitely had goosebumps, a heart full of gratitude and a sense of purpose, happy to be working again, doing what I love and documenting the experience.
Here are some of my favorite photographs from Mainly Mozart’s Resilience, a four day drive in concert festival held in the dirt East Lot of the Del Mar Fairgrounds September 10th – 13th curated by Zach DePue. It was a fantastic mix of classical music, R&B, Rock, Pop and Jazz. Zach DePue is on violin, his brother Alex DePue also on violin, Ranaan Meyer on Bass, Conrad Jones on Trumpet, Josh Fobare on Keyboard and Matthew Scarano on Drums.
