Dear Chaminade Music Club Friends,
We write to you with great concern for your health and wellbeing and encouragement for your continued pursuit of the joy and enrichment we all receive from music. As you know, many of the arts organizations around us have cancelled their 2020-2021 in-person activities because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Sweet Club House and Murray U.U. Church are closed until the pandemic subsides, and there is hardly any place we can meet with enough space to properly distance from each other according to state guidelines. Therefore, we feel we must cancel our fall concert season. Of course, we will resume live, in person concerts as soon as Massachusetts authorities issue new guidelines and our usual venues reopen, hopefully with our Feb. 21 program of organ and opera selections at Murray Church, provided state and church guidelines allow it.
When we resume concerts, guarding our performers and our audiences from the ravages of the virus is our first priority. We also want to preserve our club and its unique heritage by providing high-quality music to our local area. We'll monitor the pandemic and performing arts situation and let you know if Feb. 21 is possible. We understand that along with social isolation and health worries, many of us are facing loss of work and economic issues. For the 20-21 year, the Executive Board has voted to suspend members' dues. If you wish to make a donation to the Chaminade Music Club, we welcome your support at any time in any amount. We are grateful for all your help, financial and musical. We remember the great words of Helen Keller, who overcame unimaginable hardship: "Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much." All our officers will continue to serve, and since we are unable to have an annual meeting, in accordance with club guidelines, the Executive Board will oversee the business of the Club as needed.
Until we are able to make music and enjoy each other's presence in our accustomed patterns, be well and stay safe!
Enjoy the music!
