The Midday seems to be on pause right now, since no episode has been published for 3 months. The last episode in The Midday, "Madison Symphony Performs Mendelssohn Violin Concerto", is dated 2020-03-05.
"On pause" does not mean, however, that The Midday will not resume its activity soon, nor that its episodes are less interesting than another more active source.
