Prof. Jack Burt: An Etude a Day

UMaine Music Professor Jack Burt addressed the pandemic by giving himself a new challenge. With no opportunity to gather with others to play music or perform for an audience, he played pieces of music on his trumpet and posted them online. 

“An etude a day keeps the COVID away,” he joked to a local television host.  

Burt posted frequently during the summer months, though he decreased his virtual performances as fall arrived.
