As events surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus) continue to unfold, Ensemble Companio has decided to cancel our upcoming concerts on March 28 in Brookline, MA, and April 11 in Averill Park, NY. We will be reaching out individually to all who have purchased tickets shortly to discuss your options. As of now, our May concert in New York City will proceed as planned—we will continue to follow developments closely, and reassess our plans in the coming weeks.
The ensemble has worked incredibly hard this season preparing our performance of Journeys, and we are so proud of the strong and deep music-making and community-building we have done this season! Limiting our options to share this wonderful program with all of you has been a heart wrenching decision to make, but ultimately the right one. Our greatest responsibility during this challenging time is to ensure the health and safety of our members and our communities.
Like many arts organizations, concert revenue is overwhelmingly our largest source of income, and these cancellations will undoubtedly have a lasting impact on our organization. Despite this, we are committed to the financial support of our artistic leadership, regardless of how many concerts we are able to perform. Now more than ever, we are dependent on community support as we navigate these unknown waters. If you would like to contribute, donations to our Artistic Director fund can be made here. Our sincerest gratitude in advance for your continued support and generosity!
Above all else, please stay safe, take care of yourselves and your loved ones! Although we are actively practicing social distancing, the love and support within this community is stronger than ever. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best,
The Board of Ensemble Companio:
Mikey Steiger, President
Allison Bailey, General Manager
Katie DiMaria, Development Chair
Emily Higgins, Communications Chair
Kara Li, Treasurer
Greg Pratt, Secretary
