As you probably know by now, COVID-19 has affected all of us in many ways, and it continues to do so.

It was with a heavy heart when we made the decision to cancel our entire 2020 summer program and deny you, our friends, the music you all love and cherish, and ourselves, the thrill of presenting it to you with the quality you deserve and expect.

Until further notice,  all events will continue to be cancelled. Updates will be posted here and on our social media.

Check back with us often, as we are spending this time rebuilding and making many changes to our website and social media. We are working hard to that end and dedicated to find ways that we may satisfy your craving for the best in music and culture, and to fulfill our need to perform the music we have studied and rehearsed for so many years.

Thank you for your support and patience, stay safe...we shall return!
