From Carl Schutte & the NKCC Board of Directors:
The Board of NKCC has been monitoring the COVID-19 virus information and has determined that in the best interest for the health and safety of our dedicated members, that we cancel the remainder of the rehearsals and the concert scheduled for April 26, 2020. The health experts including the CDC and the Surgeon General of the US are recommending that to deter the spread of the virus, we practice measures, such as “social distancing, washing hands frequently” etc. With the increased size of our chorus, these recommendations are difficult to maintain in our choral setting and for our concert audience.
From Stephanie Nash, Artistic Director:
I am sad to have to cancel this upcoming concert. The repertoire is fantastic and our singers were making such wonderful progress. I plan on repeating this rep into our 40th anniversary season for 2020-2021. When our concert dates are set for next season, we will notify you by email. There will also be information on our website and our Facebook page. Until then, please stay safe — stay home as much as you can in the next few weeks. We do not want to experience life as many other cities in the world have had to bear in this last month.
Thank you for your continued support of NKCC. Singing makes a difference in so many people’s lives. Music is an important part of who we are and how we process events in our lives that seem too big to handle and describe.
