Opera in the driveway

A couple from Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, has been using their musical talents to bring their community together for weekly street concerts, while respecting social distancing guidelines. Leah Edwards and her husband Dimitri Pitta are professional opera singers who have been setting up shop at the end of their driveway to perform classical and contemporary opera pieces for their neighbors.

"We're practicing at home, and our neighbors tell us they can hear us anyway, so we said why not take it to the driveway and make aa concert?" said Edwards. "It gets everyone out, checking on each other and get a breath of fresh air and hear music."
