“Music is one of the most spiritually nourishing things humans can share, and when the musical world falls silent, we feel its loss,” James Jolly, Editor-in-Chief of Gramophone, stated in a press release. “To ensure that music will play again when this crisis eases, we are encouraging music lovers to dig deep and help the musicians who enrich our lives day after day. We, at Gramophone, are enormously grateful for the wonderful generosity of these Award-winning artists who have given their time and talent to support our charity gala.”
