Without doubt, you’ve received a lot of emails, texts, and posts from a wide range of organizations and businesses about the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our daily lives. COVID-19’s pace of infection continues to accelerate and despite our collective yearning to get “back to normal,” it’s going to take more time. Most medical experts believe it will be several months, at least.
With this in mind, we’ve made the decision to cancel our spring concert, scheduled for mid-May. It wasn’t a hard decision to make: your welfare matters most. We’re blessed to have passionate subscribers and patrons. If we decided to go forward with the concert, we suspect many of you would seek to attend…come heck or high water, and that’s not in our collective best interest.
If you’re a season subscriber, we’ll be in touch soon to discuss options concerning your reservation.
As of today, we’re keeping our major fundraiser, #NoFilter, on the calendar for June 20th. We’ll reassess whether to move forward with this date in early to mid-May.
Music is a beautiful and effective way to weather difficult and uncertain times, so keep a song in your heart every day. We’ll get through this and when we do, we’ll find a way to celebrate together.
Wash your hands, use sanitizer, and stay safe!
Steel City Men’s Chorus is thrilled to announce the selection of Dr. Elizabeth Fisher as its new artistic director, effective 1 Jan 2020. Dr. Fisher served as guest director for our holiday concert and so won over the chorus that the board made her temporary duties permanent. Dr. Fisher moved to Birmingham in 2018 from Minnesota, where she was Assistant Professor and Associate Director of Choral Activities at the University of Minnesota, Duluth. Currently, she is an adjunct professor at both Samford University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Please welcome Dr. Fisher to our family.
