2020/2021 SEASON

With deep regret, we must share the news that due to the ongoing pandemic, we do not intend to hold any in-person concerts at our regular location, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis, through at least May 2021, meaning that our entire 2020/2021 Season will need to be re-imagined in some form or fashion. There are many, many reasons for this, but our primary concern is for the health of our audience, performers, and volunteers.

We are, of course, actively seeking other options to bring music to our audience!  We are currently working with several of the performers scheduled for our 2020/2021 Season to perform online concerts, and will annouce details as they become available.  As an all-volunteer organization, our Board has been busy dealing with the complexities of navigating the “new normal” in our personal lives, and have had limited time to take a deep dive into some of the new technologies related to presenting online concerts.   But we are learning, we are open to new ideas, and we are taking advantage of opportunities when possible. 

Finally, we have not ruled out the possibility of outdoor events, weather permitting, although that presents a whole new set of challenges.

Rest assured, we will let you know when we have details about upcoming events, either virtual or in-person!  We miss your smiling faces and we miss the experience of live music in a shared space.  Stay safe until we meet again.
