We are saddened to say that the difficult decision has been made to cancel all three of our performances of Bach's St. John Passion with The Florida Orchestra scheduled for March 20, 21, and 22. We exist to bring people together through music, but physically bringing people together is not the healthiest decision right now.
While we are deeply disappointed that we will not be able to share this incredible work with you after 10 weeks of intense and diligent rehearsals, we are vastly more concerned with the health and well-being of our community and especially of those that are most vulnerable to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Click here for The Florida Orchestra's update (published 3/13/20) which addresses questions about tickets purchased for the St. John Passion performances.
Our concert plans for our "Two Cathedrals" performances on April 24 & 26 are currently going on as planned. However, these plans could change. If we find it necessary to make any future changes, we will let you know as soon as we can.
Please consider supporting The Master Chorale and The Florida Orchestra, as well as other arts organizations in our community, with extra love and tax-deductible treasure. We will all undoubtedly experience significant losses from the cancellation of these and other planned events.
We thank you for being there for us and look forward to bringing you, our community, together again through stellar concerts in the near future.
Brett Karlin, Artistic Director & Kara Dwyer, Managing Director
