As people the world over are facing unprecedented challenges and uncertainty, difficult decisions can become more difficult. Fully aware of the variety of factors impacting events and gatherings, Vivace staff continued to hope we would still be able to offer our 2020 workshops this July.
However, as time has progressed and the recommendations of experts has become clearer, we have realized the RIGHT choice is the HARD choice; we will be cancelling all of our 2020 Summer programs.
While we remain dedicated to student musicians and their educators, there is just too much unknown about what the landscape will be in July. Additionally, in this time of economic upheaval, we don’t want to be asking families for registration fees.
We are hoping to return summer 2021 and continue to explore potential alternative options to provide leadership and music enrichment. We don’t know what the future looks like but we remain committed to student musicians and their teachers and promise to continue to communicate as it comes into focus.
Finally, of course, we remain here for you. As you are navigating these turbulent times, if there is some thing we can do be of assistance for you and your students, please know you can always reach out.
Hoping you and your families are well, and looking forward to when we can all be together, making music once again,
Dr. Villella, Dr. Tim, Todd, Thom, Adam, Greg, Andy, Rebe, Ashley, The DMA Team, & Courtney
