NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we hope that you are all coping in this strange and
difficult time with patience and in good health.
Theaters, concert halls, and school auditoriums will be among the last places to reopen and, in any case, our patrons may for some time be reluctant to attend concerts in person. For the time being, we are therefore arranging to have all our concerts video-recorded to a high standard, so that they can be watched online, whether or not we are able to present some concerts live.
Subscribers and ticket holders will be sent a private link shortly before a concert is due to take place. This will enable them to access the concert online, either at the time of the concert or for two days afterwards.
So, we are not taking a break! Our expenditure will be at least as high as in a normal season. You, SFCM’s loyal supporters and enthusiasts, have always been generous with both your season subscriptions and your donations, which enable us to bring an extraordinary series of musical artists to our community, year after year. I would therefore ask you to maintain your support while the virus rages, to the extent that you are able. In this way, you can play your part in sustaining the Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music throughout this trying time, and ensure that we emerge as strong as ever to continue our programs beyond the pandemic at the high level to which we are accustomed.
Bob Oddy, SFCM President
