Dear Friends of Belle Voci,
Due to an ongoing concern for the health and safety of our members and audiences, Belle Voci announces a delayed start to our upcoming concert season until 2021. All rehearsals and concerts, including “Diamond Memories: Celebrating 60 Years of Motown,” which had been rescheduled for Sunday, October 4th, 2020, are postponed until future notice.
Belle Voci will continue to monitor the ever-changing circumstances to make an informed decision about when to resume rehearsals and reschedule events.
After reviewing extensive research about the spread of COVID-19 as related to traditionally prepared and performed choral singing, we find that the very nature of group singing activities intensifies the likelihood of infection and spread. The range in ages and vulnerabilities of the Belle Voci family and our audiences requires us to err on the side of caution. Our artistic staff and board members have reached the difficult conclusion that it’s worth waiting to ensure the safety of all lives touched by our music. Even one case of COVID-19 passed on within Belle Voci, would be one too many!
We thank you for your support through this strange and difficult time. Please contact Marketing Director Pamela Bruchwalski email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
—-The Belle Voci Family
