Abstract: We live in a rapidly changing world; however, no one expected an event like the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact it would have on every person, in every industry, including the arts. This performance has taken a cultural historical method to investigate the importance of music and storytelling to maintain good health and happiness during times of pestilence. This research also explores language and communication through improvisatory musical accompaniment, combining musical works implied in Boccaccio’s Decameron, and 21st century repertoire drawing on nature and birdsong.
