Foothills Philharmonic remainder of season is cancelled
APR 17, 2020

Kory Vrieze conducted the Foothills Philharmonic Orchestra.
 

Greetings from Foothills Philharmonic,

As many of you are aware, on March 15 we made the difficult decision to suspend all activities as an organization until April 15. This was a decision that was in line with the recommendations of both elected and public health officials. We had many hopes that this suspension would just be that, and not a cancellation of the remainder of the season. Unfortunately, it is quite clear that, while we are seeing light at the end of the tunnel as a nation, things have not improved to the point that we can finish the remainder of the season. Therefore, I have to make the unpleasant announcement that the remainder of the 2019-20 season has been cancelled.

While this is indeed sad news, let's seek to remember the 2019-20 season not as the one that was cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, let's remember what you, our loyal audience, helped us to accomplish this season. Together, we were able to create a brand new concert series (Spotlight Chamber Series), we held our second Future Stars Scholarship Competition, but most importantly of all, we celebrated the previous 19 seasons through repeat performances of classical favorites. All of the things that we were able to accomplish were done because of your support, and we want to thank you for everything from the bottom of our hearts!
