Dear YSO friends and family,
We hope this message finds you all safe and healthy, or as safe as is possible, if you are essential personnel at your workplace. These are troubling and stressful times, and so it is with the deep regret that I am writing to inform you that the Ypsilanti Symphony Orchestra has decided to cancel our concert scheduled for April 19, 2020. We were hoping to avoid this, but the spread of the virus and Governor Whitmer’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order have made it necessary.
Our Memorial Weekend concert on Saturday, May 23, 2020 in Riverside Park is still scheduled to occur, and we are hoping to be able to share some much-needed music with you there. This is always a fun concert, and we would very much like to see you there.
We are grateful for your support of our orchestra and welcome any assistance you are willing and able to give us, to help us get through this shutdown.
Additionally, we hope that you will help to support professional musicians, who are losing much-needed income due to cancelled concerts and gigs. Some are sharing music on various social media platforms and have virtual tip jars set up. Also, please consider supporting the local businesses that have shown support of the YSO.
