A Message from Our Board — September/October 2021
The Board of Directors of the Northeast Piedmont Chorale has decided to cancel all fall 2021 rehearsals and concerts until such time as it is deemed safe for Chorale members to return to singing mask free.
In making this very difficult decision, the board considered the growing spread of Covid-19 and its variants, the danger it would pose to all Chorale members in a rehearsal setting, and the requirement in Wake County to wear masks for all public indoor activities. Further, because wearing a mask affects the quality of singing, the board prefers to wait until we no longer must wear masks for rehearsals.
As our president said in a special letter to our members, “Having come so close to returning, we are all heartbroken at this necessary decision. Only time will tell how quickly we can get through this next challenging phase and how soon we can get back to singing.” We all hope it can be sooner than later, but we are prepared to wait until we learn from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) that it is safe for all of us to rehearse together again.
Until that time, keep checking this site for the latest updates.
