We hope this finds you safe and well. Thank you very much for your continued support of our virtual concerts — we really appreciate your warm comments! We are following Governor Whitmer’s Stay Home/Stay Safe order and are not doing Gemily shows for now. Instead, we are offering mini-concerts every weekday at 5pm, all live-streamed from the Gemini Facebook page.
Here is our schedule, alternating between solo and duo shows:
- Mondays: San and Emily — Children’s show
- Tuesdays: Laz — Grown-Ups’ Show
- Wednesdays: Emily — Grown-Ups’ Show
- Thursdays: Laz — Children’s Show
- Fridays: San and Emily — Grown-Ups’ Show.
In addition, Laz will do a special Mother’s Day show on Sunday, May 10th, at 5pm, in honor of his late wife, Helen. He’ll be featuring songs that Helen wrote, as well as songs and poems relating to Mother’s Day.
Children are always welcome at the Grown-Ups’ shows — and grown-ups are welcome at the Children’s shows!
And, of course, if you can’t watch at 5pm on any given day, the shows will stay up on our Facebook page, and you can watch them at any time.
If you’d like to donate for these concerts, please do so directly to your local foodbank or another charity, rather than to us. We are all right, but we know there are many people who are in great need now. We’ve been supporting Food Gatherers and the COVID-19 Philanthropic Fund at Michigan Medicine, both here in Ann Arbor. (We know that many of you who have been watching our concerts are from other parts of Michigan and throughout the country — so feel free to donate to your local versions of these charities and / or your favorite arts organization.)
Thank you again for your support of our music. Feel free to pass on this info to others, anywhere in the country (or the world for that matter!) who may be interested!
We wish you all the best,
San, Laz and Emily
