Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Info regarding how this event is being affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.:

This event was to have taken place in April of 2020 as a live performance during the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day - a 40th Anniversary for Cantilena as a women's chorale; deeply affecting our ability to perform, celebrate, keep our audience, and maintain our revenue stream. After a long hiatus, we are rehearsing in-person (and masked) as a smaller chorus and increasing our spending to provide a safe rehearsal space and a live-streamed performance.
