A message from Maestro William Morse:
Because of the many musicians who are required to rehearse and perform in close quarters and because of the concerns for the safety of our valued audience, it has been necessary to make very difficult decisions. Based on the continuing concerns for our musicians and audience, all performances have been canceled until it becomes safe. We have officially canceled all musical events through the month of January 2021. We will continue to analyze health concerns and make decisions for the spring of 2021.
As a substitute for our performances we will present a virtual performance of our concerts which have been canceled. Currently we are supplying links to the pieces we would have performed on the October 18th concert. Obviously it is not possible for us to record a JSO performance, however these links will provide performances by well known orchestras which will give musicians and audience the option of experiencing the pieces we would have presented if conditions were normal. The program is listed below with an appropriate link to performances I personally prefer.
Also, members of the JSO string section are working on a virtual recording of the 3rd Movement of Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings. Each performer is recording from home. We hope to present this performance within the next couple of weeks. Please check our website for updates.
