COVID-19 Forces Cancellation of 2019-2020 Season Closers
Dear Kokopelli Choirs supporters and friends,
As you know, it’s been a tumultuous month for our organization. Although we desperately miss getting together to make music, we’re thrilled at the many ingenious strategies our artistic staff have devised to connect with their choirs online. There has been no shortage of love, learning, and fellowship.
We are also proud of our board’s commitment to carry on paying our amazing artistic and administrative team, in recognition of the dedication and loyalty they have always shown us in better times. They continue to work hard and be innovative in moving our programming online.
That said, given the ongoing crisis, the board has made the difficult decision to cancel all remaining concerts planned for this season. If the crisis eases drastically in the next couple of months, you may see some type of performance this summer, featuring at least a few of our ensembles.
Please understand that we’re deeply disappointed too. We live to share music, with each other and with our audience. We're staggered to think our performance season is over.
Because we are a community nonprofit, these cancellations cause us fiscal pain as well. We rely on concert revenues. We will need help from our community—at least, those who are in a position to contribute.
We're also taking time to look forward to brighter days ahead. We continue to monitor the evolving situation in the hope our 2020-2021 season can begin as planned in September.
With love and music in our hearts,
