It is with great sadness, that due to the restrictions and the extended suspension of in-person programming for youth, the Board has decided to cancel the remainder of the 2020/2021 MEP season. Although this is a huge disappointment for all of us, it was decided that it would be better to give our Members some certainty seeing as we cannot predict what the next two months will look like.
While we will not be holding rehearsals, there is still work to be done to prepare for the fall season! If you are available to volunteer this summer with fundraising and making community connections, being part of the board for next year, or would like to be part of a committee for planning/volunteer coordination/fundraising – please reach out!
The 2021 – 2022 Season
The online Registration Form will open on May 15th! We are actively planning to have two sessions of Thursday Orchestra as well as Singing Strings, and exploring the possibility of a beginner adult ensemble.
Early registration gives us the numbers required for planning, so we would appreciate hearing from you as soon as possible! We acknowledge that there is some uncertainty about what the fall will look like, as such we will not require payment at time of registration. Payment will be required on, or before, August 15th to secure your spot in the program.
We appreciate all the contributions from our Members during this very challenging year, and would like to acknowledge everyone’s efforts in helping with sanitizing, adhering to COVID protocols, submitting ideas for fundraising, being willing to stay on the volunteer list for bingo/casino dates even though they were continually delayed and rescheduled, and for sticking with the Program throughout all of this uncertainty.
Our Members patience, encouraging notes and commitment are so deeply appreciated.
Please stay safe, and we look forward to seeing everyone again in the fall!
