The UK has been in lockdown for 130 days (not that I'm counting...)
Over the past few months, we've seen every day life take on a whole new look. Front rooms turned into offices, kitchens into classrooms and even gardens became local concert halls. As lockdown measures are being eased across most of the world, I thought now would be the perfect time to catch up with Natalie, Riccardo and Ragnhild to see how they've handled lockdown and what the future holds for them.
Natalie's Story (China)
As Natalie's orchestra goes back to work, travel restrictions have meant she's stuck in the UK.

Riccardo's Story (Italy)
Whether it's been composing, organising online concert series or performing live, Riccardo has managed to find new ways of making music through lockdown.
Ragnhild's Story (Norway)
Life is pretty much back to normal for Norwegian Cellist Ragnhild as she has completed her first music festival post lockdown and looks forward to the relaunch of her Cello Academy on August 15th
Ruth's Story (UK)
For many of us, lockdown has dealt some tough blows outside of music and our work.
How have you been finding life during lockdown? If you'd like to share your story I'd love to hear it so comment below.
