Melos Choir and Period Instruments



Dear Melos Supporters,

As a result of ongoing concerns regarding the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Melos Board of Directors has decided to discontinue choir and instrumentalist practices at this time. Hence, the Voces Feminarum concert will not take place on May 8, 2020. Given current uncertainty regarding the time period for risk containment and to avoid problems with rescheduling an additional performance in the fall, we are planning to hold this concert with a proposed date in the spring of 2021.

The Board of Directors came to this difficult decision as a proactive step to comply with public health measures aimed at mitigating the spread of the virus. We appreciate that this announcement will be a major disappointment. On behalf of all the Melos Board of Directors, please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience, frustration and disruption this will cause.  While we would have preferred to conduct the concert as originally planned, the health and safety of our members and our audience is our foremost concern.

For our subscribers and ticket holders: Please email and let us know how you would like your ticket refund processed.

Until we meet again,
