Important Message from the West Valley Chorale President
The Covid-19 pandemic has caused great concern for the safety of our choir members who practice in close quarters. Many of us are also in the higher risk age category. Even wearing masks does not completely protect us from infection. Moreover, social distancing is difficult to combine with effective practicing and performing for a group of 70 people.
To minimize the risk of exposure to our singers, the board of the West Valley Chorale has come to the difficult decision to cancel the fall activities of the West Valley Chorale and the West Valley Singers.
This decision causes disappointment, not only for our choir members, but also for those who support us and who join us at our performances. We appreciate all the ongoing support. I cannot overstate how much we appreciate your commitment to the success of our chorale.
We hope to reconvene in January, and that we will be able to sing and perform in the New Year.
Iris Johnson, President
Young Singers Vocal Competition
We held our Young Singers Vocal Competition shortly before we had to suspend our season. We’ll soon post the results of the competition.
A shout out to all who attended our “Oh Lux – Light in the Darkness” holiday concerts. Our audiences were large and enthusiastic. A special thanks to season sponsor Sanderson Lincoln for their generous financial support.
