We appreciate that there continues to be a great deal of uncertainty around the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 right now, and that most, if not all, of your early music events are postponed or cancelled. It continues to be a rapidly changing situation, and recommended actions may be highly specific to your location. We will continue to update the resources on this page. You can also comment in the discussion at the bottom of this page with other resources that may be helpful to the community.

  • Decide whether to continue with your rehearsal and performance plans and how to communicate with your subscribers/ticket buyers regarding ticket exchanges if you cancel or postpone. If you go ahead, ask those who are not feeling well to stay home. If you cancel, encourage them to convert their ticket purchase to a donation or exchange their tickets for a future performance.
