PRESS RELEASE
TRAVEL BY SOUND / VICTORIA YEH
********************************

As things were getting (almost) normal again this summer, local Georgian Bay musician Victoria Yeh was back on stage, rehearsing, touring and performing in front of thousands of people.

But with new restrictions looming, Yeh’s work, as well as the entire performing arts industry, is once again on hold.

“It was so good to share music with people again – everyone was just overwhelmed with emotion,” Yeh said from his home studio. “So it’s very disappointing to see canceled shows again and the audience turned away.”

A year ago, before the vaccines and before the end was in sight, Yeh created a virtual concert series to stay in touch with his audience, funding the massive production feat with virtual ticket sales and a generous funding from BruceGreySimcoe, Long & McQuade, D’Addario, and the cities participating in the series.

Available until recently only to paid pass holders, Yeh is now releasing the entire Travel by Sound concert and adventure series for free, unlimited streaming on-demand, just in time for the holidays.

“Music heals. It’s inspiring. It is edifying. We could all use it, so I really wanted to share this music more widely, especially right now, ”Yeh said.

Travel by Sound is a six-part series featuring 20 famous Canadian musicians (including Juno and Grammy award winners) performing in concert halls across the

BruceGreySimcoe area, with bonus intermission segments highlighting local sights, tours and adventures.
