Update June 30, 2020

We hope that all are safe and thriving.

Now that Island County is in Phase 3 of the Governor's Covid-19 response paradigm, we can now consider some group activities. As the Board noted previously, it is likely that playing of wind and brass in a group setting poses an unacceptable degree of risk of Covid-19 transmission. However, we will now begin rehearsals with our string players.

The scores for three Mozart string quartets, as well as "A Little Night Music", have been posted on the website. String players can self-organize into quartets to familiarize themselves with the music. We will schedule group rehearsals for Saturday afternoons at 3 pm in Cynthia's yard, starting July 11. Assistant Conductor Gabriela Garza will conduct.

For now we will be playing for our own pleasure. The course of the pandemic will determine whether and when we can mount an outdoor performance while the good weather holds.
