The Board of the Mount Desert Summer Chorale met today to discuss the 2020 concert. Our main concern is the safety and well being of our members and concert-goers. We believe that the risk Covid-19 poses to our community is too great to hold the concert, therefore we are sorry to inform you that we are cancelling the 2020 concert season featuring the Fauré Requiem.
We will hold the Annual Meeting as scheduled on Wednesday, July 22, 2020, at 7:00 pm. We will determine if it is safe to meet in person or if we will meet virtually by July 1. We will inform you of this meeting via email.
Canceling the concert will have an economic impact on the Chorale. We are excited that David Schildkret and Amy Wlodarski have agreed to provide us with programs that we can make available to anyone who donates to our annual campaign. We will share more information about this in a future email.
We are deeply sorry that we cannot come together to sing this summer. We are looking forward to the time when we can all safely come together and fill St. Saviour's will our beautiful sound.
