Flatbread Company Fund raiser, August 25th Portsmouth 4-9 PM
To all RCS members past and present,
Over the 2020 Spring and Summer, conductors and presidents of Seacoast New Hampshire and Maine choral societies and community choruses met multiple times via zoom to discuss the possibilities for returning to rehearsals and performances for the upcoming season.
We consulted a myriad of studies, reports, guidelines, and prevailing trends regarding these possibilities. Our commitment to member safety was our chief priority in these investigations.
Rockingham Choral Society, along with every other major choral society in the Seacoast NH and ME, will be suspending in-person public activities for the Fall 2020 Semester. At our zoom social meeting, all member meeting, and Spring board meetings, we continued to be hopeful for resuming in-person activities and planned for such activities. We resisted making this decision until it proved impossible for us to return to in-person activities this Fall.
That being said, we may not have in-person public gatherings this fall, but Rockingham Choral Society is not cancelled this Fall
Through the work of your board, we have developed a program for our Fall semester that combines webinars on choral history and technique, interviews with composers, and a commissioned premiere for virtual choir.
We hope that you will still keep your membership up to date with Rockingham Choral Society (dues for the Fall 2020 semester). Maybe consider an extra show of support with an additional donation this year. It is times like these when our group needs financial support more than ever. If we want to ensure another 65 years of this chorus, our rallying during this pandemic is essential. If you are unable to pay dues due to financial hardship, please contact a board member, as assistance is available.
Thank you for weathering this storm together. I am excited about what we will do together this Fall.
Alex T. Favazza, Jr., PhD
Director, Rockingham Choral Society
