An updating list of all the major classical concerts and events being streamed online in the wake of coronavirus measures being taken globally. Measures taken worldwide to curb the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) have seen numerous classical concerts and events postponed and cancelled, and concert halls around the world closed for indefinite periods.

Countries have banned gatherings of specified numbers of people and tightened their borders, and Italy and Spain are among the countries in lockdown (curfews are restricting people to their houses apart from for vital supplies from the grocery shops and pharmacies still open).

The UK government has been giving daily updates containing their approach to the coronavirus crisis and recommendations for what the population can do to stay safe. And as more of us are staying at home to work, self-isolate and look after the family, many major classical concerts and events are being held without audiences and streamed live for us to see – for free in many cases – and to bring comfort, solidarity and some beautiful relief in trying times.

What's more is new research conducted by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has revealed that households are using this time to learn more about the music they love, and 85 percent of the 2,135 people surveyed said they planned to discover new music during the period of coronavirus isolation, with nearly a third of these (30 percent) planning to learn more about orchestral music, opera and chamber music.
