Fall Season on Hold
We are sad to report that due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the Chorus board has decided to put the 2020 fall season practices and concerts on hold. As much as we hate to do this, it is very important to do our part to mitigate the spread of this infection and to protect the many vulnerable folks in our chorus and audience. Chorus members will be notified by email of our plans as the situation evolves. We also will post significant updates on this site as well. Thank you for your understanding and stay safe. We are looking at innovative ways we might be able to practice and perform, but with the limitations imposed by the county and the size of our group, it is difficult to make it work.
Below is a letter to our chorus members from the WCC Board:
A Message from the WCC Board:
We hope that you are staying safe and that you are all well. We miss each and every one of you and look forward to when we are together again singing!
Our WCC Board met last Friday to review the current situation with Covid-19 and our practices and concerts. We have talked to both our summer director, Ed Snouffer (you may remember him from last July), and one of the Hill Country Community Band folks to see what people are thinking. We also considered the fact that the City of Wimberley has cancelled the 4th of July parade. Given all of that information and continued concerns about gathering in large groups, particularly when singing is involved, we have made the decision to cancel the summer 4th of July concerts. We agreed as a Board that we will make decisions season by season to allow for responses that can change quickly if an effective treatment and/or a vaccine should become available. When we are allowed to reconvene safely, we will both post information for you on our website and send that out via email.
We know this isn't the news that any of us want to hear, but our priority will continue to be make the decisions that prioritize the health and safety of our chorus members and our audience.
In the meantime, we want to ensure that we stay connected. We are asking each of our section
leaders to reach out to their groups to set up a Zoom conference as a way to check-in on each other. Through coffee chats, happy hours, challenges to other sections in our choir, etc., we want to continue to build our relationships. You should be hearing from the following soon:
Altos: Laura Leggett
Sopranos: Laura Russell
Tenors: Pat Rawlings
Basses: Fred Ratliff
We are a COMMUNITY chorus, and we will be important in the future in helping bring our community back together. Remember that we are made for music, and while our collective voices may have been silenced for a little while, we WILL sing that 40th anniversary music (Craig is still ready to direct!) in the not too distant future. Imagine how special that will be.
Please let us know if there is something else we can do to support you during this time. We value both your voice and your friendship!
