The Jandoli Institute will host a live Twitter chat on Tuesday on the role of music during the coronavirus pandemic. 

“Music and entertainment are playing important roles during the pandemic,” Jandoli Institute Executive Director Richard Lee said. “They fill a gap that news media and government cannot.”

The chat will run from 7 to 8 p.m. Individuals can follow the discussion and tweet questions and comments by using the hashtag #JandoliChat.
