It is with heaviness of heart but clear conscience that the Board of Edmonton Chamber Music Society must announce that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we have decided to cancel our annual Summer Solstice Music Festival, scheduled for June 2020.
Daily reports on the course of the pandemic in Alberta, in Canada, and around the world indicate that we have several months ahead which require us to continue self-distancing for the greater good.
We are in uncharted territory. Since 1954 Edmonton Chamber Music Society has brought world-class music to Edmonton, supported the development of chamber music and musicians in our community, and nurtured a love of and knowledge about chamber music. We had planned to bring a lineup of performers together for our annual Summer Solstice Music Festival, and we have not taken this step lightly.
We will weather this storm, and we look forward to seeing you there with us when the storm ends. Until then we wish you health, safety and peace of mind. When we gather again the music will be there.
