San Juan Symphony Indefinitely Postpones Upcoming Concerts Out of Caution Over COVID-19

Dear members of the San Juan Symphony community,

We at the San Juan Symphony have been closely monitoring the ongoing and developing situation concerning COVID-19 in the United States. Just yesterday, both of our venues in Durango and Farmington announced temporary closures in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus in our communities. As a result, and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone indefinitely our subscription concerts of April 4th and 5th in Farmington and Durango. Our hope is to reschedule the events but we have no further information about that at this time.

 

We make this announcement with a heavy heart: our guest artist, musicians, and staff have been putting in countless hours of work behind the scenes in preparation. Our season has been a great success and to stop right now is a terrible shock to the system. Please know that this is not a decision that we have made lightly. As other communities have decided to move away from holding mass gatherings and public events, we also feel a responsibility to protect our patrons and musicians from the potential of a wider spread of the virus.

 

Please check back soon for updates regarding our scheduled events in late April and early May, including the San Juan Symphony Youth Orchestra concert on April 28th and our Roaring Twenties Symphony Train Gala on May 3rd. Please send any questions, comments or concerns to the San Juan Symphony at sanjuansymphony@musician.org or by calling 970-382-9753.

 

We hope you remain safe and well, and we look forward to seeing you again at the concert hall very soon.

 

Sincerely,

Thomas Heuser, music director

Kathy Myrick, executive director
