These were the best concerts of 2019!

How can we close this exceptional year without the best-of lists? We asked our colleagues what has stuck with them, musically, from 2019. Read along, maybe there are a few discoveries to be made! 

Our conclusion, 2019 was music to the ears too.  2020: bring it on!
