Following the recent public announcements of closures by federal, state and local government agencies as a preventative public health measure, Chesapeake Music must regrettably make changes to its presentations scheduled for the near term.
The International Chamber Music Competition to be held on April 4 is postponed as well as the community concerts planned for April 5.
Also, the Sharel Cassity Quartet concert, at the Talbot Country Club, April 25, is postponed.
The organization’s competition and jazz program committees are exploring alternate dates for these events and will keep the public informed as the plans are developed.
Presently, there is no clear indication when social and cultural activities will return to normal, however Chesapeake Music is hoping the annual Chamber Music Festival will be able to start on schedule, June 3. Chesapeake Music is proceeding with the activities that lead to this opening date as it normally would.
The group is closely monitoring the advice and announcements from the government agencies and will advise promptly of any change in plans.
