To friends of the Simsbury Community Band
From Ertan Sener, music director, and Tim Craine, president
We hope this message finds you and your family well and successfully coping with the current situation caused by the COVID-19 virus.
We are sure you share our disappointment that our spring concert, scheduled for April 5, had to be cancelled due to the current pandemic. We hope to get back to practicing for our summer programs, on the optimistic assumption that the situation will improve by then. Realistically, however, we realize that restrictions may remain in place for some time and that we could be forced to cancel the rest of the season.
Music is an important part of our lives and a balm for the soul in these troubled times. We are encouraging our members to keep playing their instruments and finding good music to listen too. To that end we are placing videos of some of our recent concerts on line with links from our website. We hope you can make use of them and enjoy a virtual concert from time to time.
As with most arts organizations, the curtailing of our ability to perform has made a hit on our budget. As always we appreciate financial support from our friends. If you would like to contribute, mail a check to Simsbury Community Band, P.O. Box 201, Simsbury, CT 06070.
And we do plan to go ahead with plans to participate in celebrations of the 350th anniversary of the Town of Simsbury, in whatever form these activities will now take place.
Be sure to check our website for updates to our schedule. We look forward to seeing you at our next concert.
Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to postpone our Spring concert for the health and safety of both our members and audience. Please keep an eye on our website for the rescheduled date.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
We wish you all the best during these uncertain times.
