The Goshen Community Chorale board met in June to review our plans for FY 2020-21 in light of the COVID-19 situation. Given that Elkhart County remains a COVID hot spot and that choral singing is a vehicle that can facilitate the spread of the virus, the following decisions were made:
1. The suspension of activities initiated this past spring will be continued through the end of the current calendar year. This means there will be no fall rehearsals and performance as would ordinarily be the case.
2. During this time skeleton staffing will be maintained to “keep the wheels on,” so please feel free to contact our director, William Mateer, if you have any questions or concerns or need information. We will also be continuing with our normal fund-raising efforts during this time.
3. We will keep the door open for the possibility of a spring, 2021 season, if circumstances are improved sufficiently at that time to allow us to do so safely. We anticipate that a final decision about this will be made in January of 2021.
