It is disappointing, but perhaps not surprising, that we find it necessary to cancel the remaining performances of the Richmond Community Orchestra for the current season, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The RCO concerts on May 3 (Civic Hall), and June 8 (Elstro Plaza) are canceled.
It is abundantly clear that it would be too risky for the health of our players to rehearse until the risk of COVID-19 infection has passed. Similarly, it will be too risky for the health of our audience members to assemble for a performance anytime in the next 8 weeks.
RCO members are still practicing music individually at home in anticipation of the time when we can perform again, perhaps later this summer, or next fall.
