I am writing to you to update you on the status of COVID19 and its effects on Hagerstown Choral Arts (HCA). In following the “Stay Home” directive from the Governor, our rehearsal space (Hagerstown Church of the Brethren) being closed, and the general interest and well being for all of us, I have decided, with the consultation and support of Greg and the board to cancel all further rehearsals of HCA for the month of April and our concert scheduled for May 2nd.
Additionally, the officials at Antietam National Battlefield & Cemetery have decided to cancel their Memorial Day Ceremony this year. This means we will not be having rehearsals for the month of May.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 has had far reaching effects in all of our lives and in many ways. I’m personally sad that our season has had to end on such an abrupt and disheartening note, but I look forward to what we are planning for our 2020-2021 season. I’m looking forward to seeing you all soon and hope you keep on singing!
