Dear Audience Members:
Due to the ongoing impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the University of Calgary Theatre Services yesterday officially cancelled all external bookings at the Rozsa Centre through June 30, 2020. This has left Pro Musica with difficult decisions about how to handle the rest of our season. At this point, here are our plans for the remainder of the 2019-20 Season.
• Joel Frederiksen & Ensemble Phoenix Munich on April 5 = POSTPONED
• St. Lawrence SQ on April 26 & 27 = POSTPONED
• Dick Matthews Young Artists Development Program concert on May 4 = CANCELLED
We apologize for the inconvenience this causes. This pandemic has been a financial disaster for musicians and artists all over the world, which is why we are first attempting to reschedule Joel Frederiksen and the St. Lawrence SQ.
We are working with the University and artist managements on finding dates, etc., but it is a complicated puzzle with many pieces to fit together.
You will be notified as soon as we have more details. If either of these concerts is ultimately cancelled, you will receive detailed information about your options, including: donating the value of your tickets to Pro Musica (with all money going directly to the artists); applying the value of the cancelled concert to your next season subscription; or receiving a refund.
Unfortunately, the YADP concert has to be cancelled. Most all of the students in the program have summer commitments and will likely be away from Calgary next season. With these added conflicts, we see no realistic way to reschedule the event in the near future.
We hope everyone is staying healthy and taking precautions, as the top priority is the safety of our community. The situation with the coronavirus is changing every day, so it is hard to predict when things will normalize. That said, we can’t wait to see everyone back again for our next concert (whenever that may be).
Our next concert is Postponed
JOEL FREDERIKSEN & ENSEMBLE PHOENIX MUNICH
Due to COVID-19, the April 5 concert with Joel Frederiksen and Ensemble Phoenix Munich has been postponed. We are working to reschedule the concert at a later date and will update the situation as soon as we are able. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes.
At this point we are only postponing the April 5 concert and still plan to present the St. Lawrence SQ on April 26 & 27 and our Young Artists Development concert on May 4. If these events need to be rescheduled, we will let you know as soon as we are able.
The health and safety of our community is of course the highest priority. We are all hoping that the severity of the COVID-19 situation will diminish soon and that the all events in the city can resume in a safe and healthy manner. I can assure you that we will follow recommendations from Alberta Health Services and the University of Calgary before any events are rescheduled.
One of Calgary Pro Musica’s most exciting and diverse seasons yet; with artists from France, Germany, the United States and, of course, Canada. Highlights of the season include the return of both the St. Lawrence String Quartet and the Chamber music Society of Lincoln Center, the Calgary premiere of the Arod Quartet and a fascinating program of piano and wind chamber works by the Imani Winds and Roman Rabinovich to start the season.
