Dear friends and supporters of the Concert Singers of Cary,
We hope you are healthy and well during these challenging times. Our 2019-2020 performance season — the 29th season for Concert Singers — has brought us some wonderful opportunities for music and making connections in our community and world.
From Video Games Live, to a concert of works by Beethoven and Runestad with an emphasis on mental health awareness, to our annual Holiday Pops, to our February “Big Sing” with Fauré’s Requiem, to spring rehearsals of Mozart and explorations of new repertoire with Hum Sub, the year has filled our spirits with joy and meaning. We are glad to have had you be a part of it with us.
But, as the song goes, “In a New York minute, everything can change.”
As you know, due the COVID-19 pandemic, our March performance as a part of Hum Sub’s Basant Bahar was postponed. We have come to the conclusion that the rest of our 2019-2020 season must be cancelled as well. This means our May 16 Discovery Concert, featuring a performance of Mozart’s Solemn Vespers, is cancelled. The cost of any tickets already purchased for the May 16 concert will be refunded. Additionally, as Carnegie Hall will be closed well into the summer, our May 23 performance in New York City will not occur this season.
During times like this, we instinctively look for ways to rally together, to gather, to share and experience meaningful time spent in the company of others. Yet gathering is precisely the thing that, in this present moment, we must not do. So for now, we must rely, in part, on the joy and meaning that we did already share and that our spirits retain, to get us through until this moment passes and we can come together again.
And come together we will. The 2020-21 season will be Concert Singers’ 30th anniversary. We are making plans for what is certain to be an outstanding next season, and we look forward to having you with us.
