Bethlehem’s Touchstone Theater is known for working directly with local residents on theatrical productions and other community-building projects. But adapting to the pandemic has been a major challenge. 

Now Touchstone has partnered with the Lehigh Valley Song Project on an outdoor community event tomorrow night called Songs of Hope and Resistance. They will premier an original music video with local musicians, and feature some live performances in the theater’s parking lot. 

WLVR’s Jen Rehill interviewing JP Jordan and Emma Ackerman via Zoom.

WLVR’s Jen Rehill spoke with Touchstone artistic director JP Jordan and general manager slash ensemble member Emma Ackerman about the event and pivoting the organization’s work in response to COVID-19.
