Dear Chorale Friend,
All of us who participate in live music, either as a performer or as a patron, understand the negative impact the pandemic has had on our art. Choral music is impacted particularly hard due to the heightened risk singing has on both singers and our patrons. For these reasons, the RI Civic Chorale has made the decision not to start rehearsals this Fall and thus to cancel the concerts originally scheduled for October and December. We hope to be able to present concerts in early 2021, but at this point we don’t know if that will be possible, and we will keep you informed.
The RI Civic Chorale & Orchestra will still be active through virtual offerings such as music lectures and virtual rehearsals for our singers. Please watch this website for information on Dr. Rohde’s music lecture series. We look forward to when we can return to rehearsing and performing, and when we return, we will return with joy and enthusiasm!
Until we are able to gather again in song, stay well and safe.
Mary Tafuri Ross
