For all of us, if you would like to watch some concerts online (or you see there is something coming up that would be particularly good for students!) here are some that might be of interest:
For modern culture, check out the Billboard Magazine's list of live streamed audience free events and replays of concerts which will be updated regularly:
Classic FM has a list of classical music events that also will update regularly:
In the meantime, many major classical concerts and events are being held without audiences, and streamed live – for free in many cases – to bring comfort, solidarity and some beautiful relief in trying times.. From The Met in new York, to the Berlin Philharmonic, below is an updating list of the concerts streaming online in the wake of coronavirus measures:
Additionally, here in Luxembourg pianist Jean Muller has created Live auf der Stuff (Live from the Livingroom), musicians from Luxembourg performing on live stream via Facebook each night at 8PM. https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=jean%20muller%20live%20aus%20der%20stuff&epa=SEARCH_BOX
For musical theatre, Playbill has just announced a series of musicals that will be released on various platforms during the time when Broadway and the West End are shut.

I hope this helps and even gives you all some things to entertain you with your own families! I'm thinking of a musical tonight - although its Carmen at the Met tonight with Yannick Nezit-Seguin conducting... hard to know what to do we have so many choices!
Keep healthy and positive,
