Los Angeles, CA & New York, NY – QChamberStream.com, the new premiere platform for high-quality livestreamed concerts founded by Tanja Dorn’s Dorn Music and producer Bernhard Fleischer’s BFMI in April 2020, announces its next US-based performance featuring LA-based Guatemalan singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno on Sunday, June 14, 2020 at 11am PT, 2pm ET, 8pm CET. The concert (with no live audience) will be broadcast live from Gravity Media’s Van Nuys Production Center in Los Angeles, with Paul Fenkart of BFMI USA directing.
QChamberStream.com reaches audiences worldwide; this broadcast will be the first that can be viewed in China. Ticket holders will receive an access key that allows them to watch the concert during the live broadcast as well as on-demand on QChamberStream.com for one week following the performance. Ticket sales help secure musicians’ fees.
Gaby Moreno says, “I’m very much looking forward to performing this unique and special concert during these unprecedented times. My greatest joy in life is singing and I’m thrilled to be able to share my music with you all through a wonderful platform like QChamber, bringing us all together. I will be donating to the organization Color of Change that is working to fight racial injustice, and I would ask you to please consider doing the same.”
Tanja Dorn, President of Dorn Music, says, “We founded QChamberStream.com with BFMI out of a desire to continue Dorn Music’s mission of connecting high caliber artists with audiences in a meaningful way for both parties, even during this time when in-person concerts are not possible. Through this platform, artists are able to have a top-quality performance experience while audiences are able to enjoy an incredible concert from the comfort and safety of their own homes. We are very proud to present our first concert outside the classical music genre, with Gaby Moreno.”
Producer Bernhard Fleischer says, “It has paid off to keep both the musical and the audiovisual quality as high as is possible, and we are seeing that viewers remain with us for a long period of time. We are proud and grateful our longstanding technology partner in the US, Gravity Media, has welcomed us into their home for this concert.”
Marc Genin, Executive Vice President of Gravity Media, says, “Gravity Media is known for embracing new opportunities, exploiting new technologies and helping its clients launch new initiatives. Gravity Media has worked with BFMI for many years on performing arts broadcast projects that have involved such world-renowned companies as the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the San Francisco Ballet, and has built a reputation as a specialist in creating high end performance programs for the screen. We are delighted to partner with QChamberStream.com.”
