NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Great news! We are returning to live, in-person concerts for the 2021-2022 season!
We won't be in our usual home at H.W. Smith Auditorium--the Syracuse schools aren't ready for that yet. Instead, St. Paul's Episcopal Church downtown on Fayette Street has graciously offered to let us hold concerts in its resonant space. We will address COVID concerns by requiring audience members to be vaccinated or have proof of a negative COVID test within 72 hours, to wear masks, and to observe social distancing.
We realize that some of our patrons may be reluctant or unable to attend our concerts in person while the pandemic is still with us. Therefore, we have decided to continue to video-record all of our concerts. You can watch this season's performances online as well as in person. Ticket holders will be sent a private link shortly before each concert becomes available online. This will enable you to access the performance for two days. You can read the program here.
Offering both live and recorded concerts will increase our costs. 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. We 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.
