Longmont Chorale

Bob Balsman, president of Longmont Chorale, Inc., released the following statement:

Dear Longmont Chorale audience members,

Due to new CDC guidelines regarding those in vulnerable age groups and/or having underlying health issues being urged to avoid large public gatherings, we have made the difficult decision to end our season, effective immediately. This includes the Viva Voce concert in April.

Please read the update posted on Thursday, 3/06/2020 on the CDC website here.

As much as we all love singing together and for our audience, we need to follow the recommendation to avoid large gatherings to protect everyone’s health.

Please watch our website, social media, and your email for more information.

We hope you will follow the practices listed by health authorities like the CDC and WHO. Stay well, and we’ll be in touch again soon.

At this time, the Longmont Chorale is the first musical organization in this areas whose cancellations has come to my attention. At least one other organization is trying to arrange live streaming for a planned performance, so that at-risk persons can enjoy the music without going out, but nothing has been announced at this time.

I will try to  watch for any further announcements or cancellations from groups in this area in response to the spreading Coronavirus outbreak.
