I hope that the information above has eased your concerns. The shows will go on, and with a bit of luck, as scheduled.
The most likely one to be rescheduled will be the Festival Trio which is supposed to open Musicfest on Friday May 22nd. Since violinist Sadie Fields would be flying from Belgium (something she can’t do at the moment), it depends on when flight restrictions are lifted. There should be no travel issues with the recital by Bénédicte Lauzière on May 29 or the Rolston Quartet on June 5. And Robert Silverman should be able to perform on June 12 as long as the government doesn’t impose restrictions on small gatherings.
If most of you are willing to enjoy the concert using Digital Musicfest, the shows could conceivably run even with audience limitations of 50. I’m willing to run the festival at a loss, but with your support, the shows can go on and I can still break even.Ken Gee musicfest founder/director
phone 519-993-7591 or email p.s. For those of you who attended the Festival Trio Encore, our audio engineer Dave has been ill, but I have edited audio for the Ravel and Debussy Sonatas. The Dumky Trio is in progress. I may send out links to the two Sonatas ahead of the Dumky (I’m waiting for editing update). Sorry for the delay.
p.p.s. Regular tickets for Musicfest will be mailed to you before the concerts so you don’t have to stand in line for pickup
