South Shore Chorale's COVID-19 Statement - March 31, 2020
Our entire world has been impacted by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Due to this pandemic, the South Shore Chorale Board of Directors has come to the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the Chorale's 2020 spring concert season. This includes our concert on May 2, 2020 of Brahms Requiem. South Shore Chorale is committed to safety of our performers, patrons, staff, and volunteers. We will continue to follow the federal and state declarations as it pertains to this pandemic.
As hard as this cancellation is, the South Shore Chorale is very excited for our 50th Concert Season in 2020-2021! We have three major concerts planned including A SSC Christmas on December 5, 2020, A Cathedral Concert on February 27 & 28, 2021, and our 50th Anniversary Concert on May 1 & 2, 2021. Please watch our website www.southshorechorale.org for more details.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to ensure good health for everyone involved in our organization and our performances. Stay safe and healthy!
