Although we physically shut down our programs and gatherings on March 13th, we have done all that we can to bring the arts to your homes. Lessons, classes, workshops, music therapy, and nightly concerts are just a few ways we have worked to keep you creative and connected. This pandemic has many unknowns and our ultimate priority for resuming our usual operations as an organization will be the safety and well-being of our team, artists, and our patrons. We will be conservative in our approach – working with health and government officials and leaning on our peer organizations to collectively make smart decisions about how we gather again in the community.
For the time being, all rehearsals and show planning will be moved virtually until further notice. At this point, we do not have a target date for resuming in-person rehearsals but will announce the date when we have the information needed to make an informed decision.
Below is a breakdown of programs and shows:
CFCArts Community Choir
- 365 (April 30-May 1) – postponed and modified into a public community performance (new dates TBA)
- New Works Chorale (Summer 2020) – canceled
- Summer Broadway Show (Summer 2020) – postponed until 2021
- Annual Holiday Celebration (December 2020) – continuing as planned (but still monitoring the situation for further action)
CFCArts Symphony Orchestra
- Symphonic Cinema (June 12-13) – show postponed (new dates TBA)
- Symphony Orchestra Performance (October 2020) – continuing as planned (but still monitoring the situation for further action)
- Cinderella (April 17-May 10) – postponed, to be included in the 2020-2021 Season (new dates TBA)
CFCArts Youth Programs
- Young Artists Orchestra: In Concert (May 3) – canceled
- Heroes and Villains (May 22-23) – exploring a virtual performance offering
- The Sound of Music (June 5-6) – postponed (new dates TBA)
- Summer Camps (Summer 2020) – virtual offerings planned, but still exploring in-person offerings based off of state and local guidance.
Unfortunately, we have made the tough decision to postpone our entire 10th Anniversary Celebration until 2021. This gives us the ability to be flexible and nimble over the next 18 months to respond to the needs of our artists and our community. We hope to remount postponed shows that were in the works during that time frame.
Although we have pressed pause on over 100 other community programs in five counties, we are creating custom offerings for many of our partners in vulnerable communities, schools, arts and wellness, and for seniors.
We believe and know that the arts are so very important during this time. We want to hear from you to know how we can walk alongside you – no one is left behind.
Stay safe and well and we hope to see you again soon!
