At Chamber Music Kelowna, we are now resigned to cancelling all of our planned 2020-21 season. We are offering the performing groups we had already contracted when the pandemic hit the opportunity to reschedule their Kelowna appearances and are pleased to report good progress with this plan. We hope to have a complete 2021-22 season schedule of 5 exciting concerts at the RCA to announce to you early in 2021. At this point, we’re not sure when it will be possible to offer the season for sale, but please rest assured that the 250 subscribers to the 2019-20 season will be protected with a right to subscribe to their previous seats – or to request a change in seating if they prefer.
As you can imagine, for this plan to work, we have to be able to invite at least 250 people into the Mary Irwin Theatre. We are not considering moving our main subscription series events because the MIT is so popular with our audiences who value its intimate feeling and pleasant vibe.
We are confident in your continuing support for Chamber Music Kelowna during these difficult times. The Board wants to reassure you that CMK remains strong and dedicated to the goal of returning to the stage as soon as possible to bring the best in classical music to Kelowna audiences. And, of course, we remain committed to the health, safety and well-being of our audiences, guest artists, staff and volunteers above all else.
