Hello I am in the Uk and I subscribe to Pianist magazine which I find quite informative, I use the App for the iPad and u get a couple of scores each month of various levels plus a couple of video tutorials. It also has articles on topics such as competitions/ new cd releases, and interviews with performers and musicians. https://www.pianistmagazine.com/

Also I listen to a couple of classical music radio channels which are good for interviews,news of recitals etc. I also listen to podcasts, a couple of the main newspapers have classical music ones.

Not sure where you are from but if not the UK you might have some equivalent.

A good cheap way to see performances live is join the mailing list of any conservatoire/ music school in your town if you have one, there are very good performances at my local one, there are often visiting professional musicians who hold master classes for the student, but the public can go watch them and they are not expensive. However I live in a big city so I am lucky to have a quite a few colleges to chose from.
