We used airplay to broadcast from our iPad to our TV. Really loved the first two movements of the Beethoven sonata, but then You Tube kicked us out and we could not get back to the concert. We were able to watch Haskell play Fur Elise on Youtube, which was very nice.This was our first experience with Groupmuse. I don't know if we will try again.

First, thank you to Lily and David for your entertaining and expert hosting of the evening, and thank you to all of you for attending, for your spirited discussion in the post-concert Zoom meeting (I learnt more than I ever cared to about pianist's chairs!), and for your generous donations. I also want to say I am sorry to hear of Judy Day's experience being kicked off of Youtube right before the 3rd movement of Op 110- in my mind the most deeply "mysterious" and climactic part of this program. Did anyone else get disconnected? Perhaps this was related to your using "Airplay"? Anyway, I hope you will give Groupmuse another chance! Haskell
