Earlier this week, the Band Commission met to discuss the performance options for the 2020 Season. With sadness, the Commission announces that the regular season is cancelled and there will be no full-band concerts this year.
We are considering alternatives for the CRMB to continue connecting with our community this summer. Some ideas include:
1) Individual band members presenting a short “concert” and/or presentation online (fun history of their instrument, a short talk on their favorite Sousa marches, could be ANYTHING). We are working to get these set up for June.
2) Small-group performances later in the summer, if new research, best practices, and recommended safety protocols allow. It is possible these performances could occur outdoors for live audiences, but they would, at the very least, be broadcast so audience members can enjoy safely from home.
The Commission will meet in late June or early July to reevaluate possibilities. This is our 70th season, and we certainly aren’t going to let it go by unnoticed! So stay tuned for more news!
