The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone in so many ways. Pianist Simone Dinnerstein could hear the change that took place in New York City last March. She said, "The sound had been turned down...and that quiet was not necessarily a peaceful quiet." On today's show, we'll share Dinnerstein's musical response to that unsettling quiet.
