During the pandemic when in-person events were not an option, IFAA remained dedicated to providing the DFW community an avenue to remain connected to the classical arts, a source of comfort for many. The result was a series called "Virtual Vibes", an online platform for the youth to perform and educate, drawing from experiences along their artistic journeys. The endeavour aimed to open a discussion regarding topics within the classical arts and to ultimately encourage young aspiring artists.
