Coronavirus: A letter from Tony Pacini - March 19, 2020

Read below

Dear Jazz fans, friends and family,

Due to the sudden emergence of the coronavirus (Covid19), it is obvious that our lives have been radically changed. Like many professional musicians around the world, my upcoming performances have been cancelled indefinitely. Thusly, most of my income (over seventy percent) has ended, and my financial future is uncertain. In this time of care however, it is important to turn our fears into empathy towards each other. THIS IS, MORE THAN EVER, A TIME TO CARE. I believe the outcome will hinge entirely on how many of us choose to care. To all my fans, friends, and fellow human beings; please do your part, stay home and care. It is a hard pill to swallow, accepting the fact that our limitation of travel will save lives. - In a piece of orchestral music, when a composer wishes to have one instrumentalist not play for the entire song, the word "Tacet" appears in the chart, and this "Tacet" could last a while. The actually musical definition is as follows;

"Tacet is Latin which translates literally into English as "(it) is silent". It is a musical term to indicate that an instrument or voice does not sound, also known as a rest."

As for me personally, many know that I prefer to be "quiet" and "private" on social media, but more open on a "one to one basis" (or, as is evident here, on my website). Many non-performing facets of my life are being quickly redefined. For example, most of my income comes from performing, but a percentage of it comes from my piano teaching and tuning. I'm finding that with tools like Skype, and Zoom (video conferencing applications), I'm able to continue teaching some of my students, but it is only a small percentage of my income. If you would like to study piano, please email me with your inquiry. My weekly volunteer work as a radio host obviously is not viable currently. For those of you who listen to my program "Jazz Connections" (Sundays, 5pm to 7pm Pacific Time at KMHD.org) you will be listening to "encores" of my pre-recorded shows for now.

In conclusion, I am hoping to see all your faces again soon enthusiastically embraced by beautiful music. The peak has not yet happened, and there is no telling how long, difficult, nor severe this is going to be. The truth is humbling though – we are all in this. May you and your loved ones be safe, and when your worst fears emerge, I hope you convert that energy into an empathetic, compassionate deed for someone.

With a concerned heart, the joy that will lift the weight from my chest will come when the world realizes that pent up emotions of millions of musicians will have been poured into compositions, arrangements and practice during this time of care and tacet. The tidal wave of creativity and art that will flood us during our reconstruction will be one of the strongest, if not THE strongest, reminder of what it means to be human. I shall be a contributor.

In case you find yourself sitting, in boredom, tapping your foot with no music, remember to visit my video page: http://tonypacini.com/videos.html It's there to give you music anytime.
I'm also working with my videographer (Ciro Fusco) on obtaining proper high quality sound equip. for an upcoming internet streaming concert. Please return to this page on my website for details regarding the future date - fingers crossed.
