Unfortunately restrictions due to coronavirus mean that many, if not all live performances, fairs, festivals etc., have been cancelled. You will be able to find some online concerts and music to listen to. You could also support local artists of all kinds by searching out those near you and buying their products or gift cards. Times are very difficult now for artists of any kind, music, painting, crafts, sculpture, metal work, etc., and any local artists will be VERY grateful for purchases or commissions.
If you want to listen to soothing, relaxing music, check out this video on Vimeo (a Youtube alternative).
