As artists continue to adapt to the ongoing pandemic, a number of prominent figures have come together to launch a new and innovative resource for education and support, titled “CLICKCOACH.”
Among the collaborators for this group are mezzos Jamie Barton, Briana Hunter, and Sasha Cooke; conductors James Gaffigan, Bill Eddins, Viswa Subbaraman, Amy Acklin, and Daniela Candillari; sopranos Lise Lindstrom, Leah Crocetto, Amanda Majeski, Janai Brugger and, Sheri Greenawald; baritone Christopher Maltman; stage directors E. Loren Meeker, Susan Stone Li, Crinne Hayes, Maria Todaro, Sara E. Widzer, and Matthew Ozawa.
“It’s part of our fabric to hold each other up both on and off the stage,” says conductor and CLICKCOACH founder Christopher Ocasek. “I forged CLICKCOACH to give us – the artists – a chance to be part of a community again, to support each other as we do when we’re face-to-face, and to help struggling artists through an unprecedented period of instability. With CLICKCOACH my hope is to create a trusted space to help each other not only financially, but also through sharing great information that’s never been brought together like this.”
