FANTEL MUSIC of Coral Springs Thrives During Pandemic Shutdown: Live to Virtual to Live Again!
Based in Coral Springs and faced with no foreseeable employment in their established performing and teaching careers, Caryl Fantel (Music Director, Event Producer, Pianist, Teacher, Editor, Arts Activist) and Roy Fantel (Drummer, Percussionist, Teacher, Video-Audio Producer, Web Designer) refocused their diverse talents and quickly became one of South Florida's most in-demand virtual production entities, developing, directing, and/or producing a series of stunning virtual performances that repeatedly wowed online audiences, including:
In addition, over the last year, the Fantel Music team created and/or produced music tracks for numerous composers and performers, a virtual music series for East End Temple in New York City, a virtual memorial tribute to beloved music director Paul Reekie, and more.
"COVID has been extraordinarily challenging for everyone in the entertainment industry, but it has given us the opportunity to demonstrate our flexibility,"
"As the pandemic begins to wane, and life—and live performing—slowly but inevitably returns to normal, Fantel Music looks forward to taking on new productions, live or virtual," adds Roy Fantel.
