We have been agonizing over the impact of this very recent novel Coronavirus pandemic. While we remain hopeful that late May will find us all in a better place, we have decided that we cannot ask singers to risk their health by attending rehearsals, nor do we want to jeopardize the health of our most vulnerable patrons. Therefore, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our performance of The Greatest Generation: An American Oratorio, scheduled for May 31, 2020.
This cancellation will have a significant financial impact on The Mendelssohn Choir. We are grateful for the deep generosity of our community and ask that you consider donating your Greatest Generation tickets for a tax credit. Keep reading for more info.
