Covid update – June 2020

To all our Friends,

We are experiencing difficult and unsettling times.  Our government’s initiatives are working diligently to help return lives to what we know as normal. The timeline for this however is still uncertain. We as a community and an orchestra will be resilient and supportive to assist in making that happen.

For the time being, we have cancelled our concerts until further notice. When the physical isolation period ends we will look forward to our 2020-2021 season. 

In the meantime, we are busy planning our 20th season program.

“ YCE 20 Years Together”.             

Stay safe. Practice physical distancing and distant socializing.

We will see you all shortly.

Concerts cancelled for remainder of season!

It is with regret that we have cancelled our concerts for this season. We had hope that the May concerts might be possible, but we now realize that we have to postpone our concerts until next season.

The tentative dates for the upcoming season are:
October 17
December 5
March 27
May 8
Naturally we will be sending updates with more detail over the course of the coming weeks and months. Please pencil these dates into your calendars!
Stay safe and we hope to see you in the fall!
