San Francisco Opera has announced the cancelation of their summer season. I was so looking forward to these operas, but I was certain we would be hearing about this, and I full understand why they had to cancel.

Everyone knows by now that there will be no live performances this summer. Many of us believe there will also be no live performances in the coming year. Yes. I’m sorry to admit it, but I can’t imagine we will be back on stages soon. That doesn’t mean the music has died, though. As you’ve seen on this site, many are making music together, while being apart. THAT will, I’m sure, continue.

When I see announcements similar to the one I’m featuring below I will post them here. Please participate in these if you are able. Please donate to these as well. There are sure to be some groups that will not return once we get through this crisis unless support comes from readers like you.

And now for an announcement from Music in May (MIM):
