AN IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Dear Glens Falls Symphony Family,
We hope this April day finds you all well, healthy, and safe. These times are full of challenges and trials, but we have hope in the future, and in the power of great music to give us comfort and inspiration.
After virtually meeting with the Board of Directors, our committees, and the musicians’s representatives from the local 506 of the American Federation of Musicians, we have made the decision that to keep everyone safe, we must cancel the May 3 Season Finale concert. We will all miss the chance to gather in the auditorium to hear Respighi, Adams, and Rachmaninoff, but we will be reaching out to you soon with music through email, social media, and radio to help you have music in your life while we all shelter together, apart. Watch for recordings and videos from musicians and from the archives coming soon. Now, with a message for you below, is our fearless artistic leader, Maestro Charles Peltz.
These are challenging times for everyone, and have hit the performing arts especially hard. The musicians who perform with the Glens Falls Symphony come from all over- our local region, the Capital District, New York, Boston, and New Jersey, to name a few. We have made arrangements to help support the players to the extent that we are able, while responsibly working to ensure that the music plays on for many years to come.
To support the players and the Symphony in the long run, we are asking everyone who has season tickets to consider transforming the value of the May 3 tickets into a tax-deductible donation. We would send you a tax receipt for your records. You may also exchange your May 3 tickets into a gift certificate for concert tickets for friends to concerts in the 20-21 season. Season ticket purchasers may also elect to receive a full refund. You may contact us anytime before June 1 to indicate your preference.
We thank you for your incredible support over these past 30+ years, and we look forward to many more great performances on the horizon.
Glens Falls Symphony
