After a promising first half of our rehearsal season, with exciting new singers, new compositions from Bob that we were sure would make our audiences smile, a new sound company and hours of planning and preparation, we have felt the cultural temperature of our community and have decided that in “the abundance of caution” (the current buzz word), we must cancel our Spring Series.
This decision was not made lightly. We first considered the disappointment of all the singers who have already worked very hard, begun memorizing, auditioned and earned places as soloists on the program. We also had our publicity ready to go and almost out the door, as well as a band fully hired, a sound system and engineers ready to go and venues long since lined up for us.
We deeply regret the need to cancel this concert series. The next five weeks, although intense, is when the music happens- the details have been finalized, the initial learning of the “notes” accomplished. We were ready to enjoy the music making that always happens about this time. It is a huge loss for us to give that up.
We are already looking ahead, however, and plan to use some of the pieces that are close to performance-ready in a benefit concert next fall. As those plans develop, we will be letting you know.
In the meantime, it is probably obvious that this represents a significant financial loss to our organization. If you feel so moved to make a donation to the future of The Lakeside Singers, we would be extremely grateful.Support Us
