A scene from the Vivaldi’s Four Seasons - Spring in the time of Covid.

The Covid-19 pandemic continues to have a negative impact on the entertainment industry and artists.

With the lockdown regulations still in place, artists and event organisers are struggling to resume all their activities. Many are now exploring other ways of continuing to share their art with their audiences such as through innovations like hosting virtual events.

Seasoned Durban musician, Michel Schneuwly, who runs Baroque 2000 wanted to keep music alive and contacted award winning director Eubulus Timothy. He collaborated with producer Seema Ramsewak, and produced a short film, Vivaldi’s Four Season — Spring in the time of Covid, which won best artistic film at the eThekwini Filmmakers Awards.
