An Update About Our 2020-21 Season

August 25, 2020

Dear Master Singers Patrons and Friends-

We miss you! It has been a strange Spring for us all, and even as some areas of Sacramento begin to re-open, it remains difficult to predict what our 2020-21 concert season will look like. Although we are eager to return to our live programming, the safety of our singers and our community continues to be Sacramento Master Singers’ top priority. Please know that our leadership is staying apprised of current recommendations from state and local public health officials regarding the safety of holding public events. We are committed to following the guidance of public health experts, and to respecting the health and safety concerns of our membership. 

Sadly, we must inform you that the Sacramento Master Singers will not be holding a concert in-person this December, nor will we be selling our typical 3-concert subscription for the 2020-21 season. The safety of the Sacramento community is our top priority, and we are committed to following the guidance of public health experts with regards to public events, which remain on pause at this time.

Sincerely,

Sacramento Master Singers

Important Update About Our 2019-20 Season

Dear SMS Patrons-

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we regret to inform you that we must cancel the rest of our season, including our March concert, originally scheduled for 3/14 and 3/15, our YouthSing outreach concert on 4/16, and our May concerts on 5/16 and 5/17.

Current “stay-at-home” orders from state and county officials prohibit our choir members from gathering together to rehearse for the foreseeable future. Under these circumstances, we are unable to prepare a high-quality program for May, regardless of whether the order is still in effect on the planned concert date. The health and safety of our singers, patrons and the general public are our priority and we thank you for your understanding in this difficult time. We will be contacting all of our season subscribers and patrons who purchased tickets over the next couple of weeks regarding refunds. 

As a nonprofit arts organization, Sacramento Master Singers relies on the support of our donors, subscribers, and ticket buyers. This individual support is crucial to our organization’s existence, especially now as many arts organizations are realizing significant losses due to the impact of COVID-19. If you so choose, the cost of your tickets can be donated back to the Sacramento Master Singers, making you eligible for the associated preferred seating donor benefits.

Lastly, although this season’s programs have been put on pause, we are working to bring some Master Singers’ music to you digitally, and hope you will stay engaged with us via social media! Please stay safe and healthy during these uncertain times. We appreciate each and every one of you and we look forward to making music for you again soon.
