Isolation Project

A Youtube Concert

A YouTube Series of Solos and Duos performed by 10th Wave Members and Guest Artists recorded during social isolation in March & April 2020.


As we are unable to perform live for you, we wanted to explore the realm of solo and duo projects during this period of social distancing and isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Videos of new music were released for viewing every week by 10th Wave members and guest artists who have performed with 10th Wave over the past 2 years. We hope that you enjoy these short instrumental works that are recorded in our living rooms!
