If the talented people below aren’t Upper West Siders, they should be — honorary, at least. (Actually, they’re from Pittsburgh.)
Update: We reached out to them and they responded:
Thank you so much! We gladly accept the honor as long as we don’t have to pay New York rents! We have a daughter and her husband living in Brooklyn as well as our oldest son who also lives in Brooklyn. They are safely hunkered down and working from home and we pray for all New Yorkers every day.
We really appreciate finally becoming New Yorkers

Are there any creative collaborations going on closer to home? Any solo sensations? Send your demos or videos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Maybe we’ll have a virtual concert — The WSR Amateur Hour — although there are plenty of professional musicians in the neighborhood. Music of any kind (don’t make us regret this) is welcome. Music is good for the soul. It can make it so much easier and more pleasant to be sequestered in our house, which… “is a very, very, very fine house…”🎵
Thanks to Jane Schwartz for the tip.
