It is with heavy hearts that we announce that we have officially suspended the remainder of this season’s performances, including our Spring House Concert fundraiser and the Missa Gaia choral concert on June 14th. We all know there is no other choice if we are to do our part to get through this pandemic safely.
However, we will continue to provide valuable programming to the young people in our chorus. One example is our new Take the Lead! series, where women leaders from different industries share their career paths and daily job descriptions with the young women in our high school ensemble, Coda. We were planning this before this crisis, and now we are modifying the events so they can happen virtually. We have guests lined up through May, and we had our first session on April 3rd! We will keep you posted on other ways we are continuing to engage the young people we serve.
Our Spring House Concert and our June choral concert are key elements of the Chorus’ year, both musically and financially. Because we can no longer host these events, we ask that you please help us sustain the Berkshire Children’s Chorus and see us through to next year’s season, our 30th. You may donate online, or send a check to Berkshire Children’s Chorus at P.O. Box 18, Sheffield, MA 01257.
We look forward to the day when we can once again gather to celebrate the uplifting magic of music. Until then, we hope these videos
will provide some solace and maybe even a smile. As the song Juntos
proclaims, “together we are strong!”
