A message from Music Director William Schrickel, Executive Director Jon Lewis, and Board President James Waldo:
In March, the MSO was to perform Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 and a new work by Polina Nazaykinskaya, Fenix. In May, we were to premiere Carol Barnett’s Will’s Ladies, with mezzo soprano Clara Osowski, and other works. Those programs have been rescheduled for October 11 and November 22, respectively, and we hope to be able to perform these concerts then.
Although we miss being together and performing, the safety of our community – our musicians and audience members – has to be our highest priority right now. This forced absence reminds us of how important this music is in our lives.
We look forward to seeing you again when circumstances permit. Our first performance will begin with Nazaykinskaya’s Fenix, a new piece about rebirth. Like the mythical Phoenix, we will rise with you when we are able.
– Bill, Jon, and Jim
