The following is an update from the Baltimore Architecture Foundation on how they are adapting and coping during these times.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
The Baltimore Architecture Foundation (BAF) has committed to re-imagining our programs for our audiences at home. Our team is using Youtube, Zoom, and Facebook Live to deliver our Spring Lecture Series, and have taken more time to connect to users through social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter.

While some of our in-person programs had to be postponed, we’re thinking creatively about engaging audiences virtually with programs like virtual architecture tours.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
We sadly had to fully cancel our final concert opera production of this season, and have postponed two other concerts as well as our major annual fundraising event. However, our staff must continue to work (remotely of course,) maintaining operations and focusing on how to navigate through this unprecedented time as a performing arts organization.

Are you doing something for the community or your employees that you want to share with our readers?
Absolutely — we want to stay connected to our wonderful community while our live productions are temporarily paused. We are digging into our audio archives to create “BCO Moments of Beauty” from several past productions, all with the blessing of the wonderful artists who performed those moments. We are sharing this series of clips via our social media channels, and as a collection on our website which will be added to weekly at http://www.baltimoreconcertopera.com/bco-blog
