Dear MVPO Patrons and Supporters,
We want to thank all of you for your continued support of the orchestra, especially during this difficult time. Following local, state, and federal guidance, the MVPO Board made the decision to cancel the spring concert, originally scheduled for May 17, 2020. That concert has been rescheduled for October 25, 2020. Season ticket holders and others who have already purchased tickets for the 2019-2020 season May concert will be able to use those tickets for future performances through May 2021.
The Board of Directors is also finalizing programming for the other 2020-2021 season concerts scheduled Sundays at 2:30 p.m. on December 13,2020, March 7, 2021, and May 16, 2021. Our December Family Holiday Concert will include many holiday favorites. March Madness Movie Themes on March 7th will feature themes from the cinema, and our Baltic Cruise on May 16, 2021, will include the Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliet Fantasy, as well as Sibelius Symphony No. 2.
In the meantime, we encourage everyone to look online for our concert calendar, 'Like' us on Facebook, or visit our MVPO website at www.mvpomusic.org. We are working to upload recordings of our past concerts on our website, so you will be able to revisit some of your favorite performances while we're unable to meet in person.
This has been an especially difficult time for all Americans who thrive on quality music. Our orchestra members will first come together for rehearsals almost 6 months from our last meeting. We remain hopeful that all Americans will be able to enjoy live music this fall, but the health of our audience members and players comes first. We will be monitoring the COVID-19 guidelines/recommendations, making adjustments for next season as necessary.
Thank you, as always, for your support. We look forward to coming back together to share great music as soon as it is safely possible.
