Greetings fellow music lovers!
We hope this note finds you and yours all healthy and well as we continue to push through the pandemic and “pandemic fatigue.”
The Ashland Chamber Music Society, like other performance-based entities, is presently holding off on offering any in-person concerts for the 2020-2021 season. If the Covid-19 situation dramatically improves within this season, we will gladly rethink this decision. However, for now, we are playing it safe for our patrons, the musicians, and all involved with our concert.
The current crisis has prompted us to look into how this is being handled by other musical organizations. We’ve discovered that some societies are opting to do virtual performances open to both regular patrons and the wider community of music lovers. While ACMS is exploring using this option, for now we have decided to highlight a virtual concert offered by other societies and send this information out to those on our e-mail list each month.
Each presenting organization will choose an electronic format to facilitate access to their concert, along with a way to pay or to make a donation. You will need to get in touch with that organization before the event to sign up, so they can send you the instructions for watching the performance.
Enjoying the virtual performances will be a nice way to continue supporting the performing arts during this pandemic period from the safety of our own homes, while becoming a bit more familiar regarding what else is out there. I think many of us are really tired of our computers at the moment, but watching a live concert on computer or ROKU is not so bad!!!!
If you would like to be added to our e-mail list, please click on this link to our website and fill out the information. If you are already getting our concert e-mail messages, there is no need to do so.
We hope that this will help us all get through the upcoming months as things get cooler. May you all stay safe and upbeat as the season proceeds, and please consider checking out the virtual concerts!!
The Ashland Chamber Music Society
