Special Announcement -- April 2, 2020
Dearest fans and vocal music-lovers,
This has been difficult for us to reckon with, but we regret to inform you all that, due to the ongoing and tragic situation presented by the COVID-19 virus, KHORIKOS must postpone our May 2nd concert, a celebration of the winners of our 4th ORTUS International New Music Competition.
This is no pleasure for us to share, and it’s even more difficult for us to not meet for rehearsal on a weekly basis. Our work of diligently preparing and interpreting choral music both new and old provides us with meaning and catharsis, and we know it does for you, too.
That's why we are happy to report two bits of good news:
1) The show will go on! We are planning to perform the winning ORTUS pieces in the late fall, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, December 5th, 2020, and we hope to see you all in person to share music with you then!
2) KHORIKOS is hard at work thinking about how we will continue to engage with you remotely. Please keep an eye on our social media, where we will be sharing new musical content with you in the coming weeks.
We share in all of your feelings of uncertainty and fear in these times, but we also know that music has always been the remedy for us in our darkest moments. We look forward to continuing to share that light -- music -- with you all in the weeks to come.
