OUR CONCERT SEASON
The SSC Board of Directors met earlier this week and unanimously voted to cancel the Christmas Concert on Saturday, December 5, 2020. While we had hoped to reconvene "in person" this fall, we are unable to do so in a safe manner. As our world continues to learn how to live during a pandemic, we have learned that singing in large groups such as SSC is one of the riskiest things to do. Even with face masks, it is very dangerous in an inside room.
We are thrilled to announce the South Shore Chorale Virtual Academy for the fall of 2020! Beginning September 15, SSC singers will be invited together virtually to engage in a variety of activities to continue our lifelong pursuit of choral music. Each Tuesday evening, there will be opportunities to improve music literacy, listen to great choral works, engage in discussions, get to know other SSC singers, and participate in webinars with professional composers, performers and conductors!
Our first Virtual Academy event will be on Tuesday, September 15 for Social Hour from 7:00-8:00 pm. Grab your favorite glass of wine, beer, soda, or bottle of water and spend some social time with your fellow SSC singers. All of these events will be free! Watch for more information in future weeks as we announce the entire semester's schedule.
Your SSC Board of Directors will continue to follow the research and work with the FDL County Health Department to monitor the situation to make educated decisions concerning the spring of 2021. Please know that the safety and health of our singers and staff are the most important factors as we make these decisions.
When we are able to safely gather together again, we WILL celebrate our 50th Anniversary together! It WILL be the biggest celebration to ever come to Fond du Lac...you can guarantee it!
Stay safe and healthy!
