Tuesday Marc Scorca, President/CEO of OPERA America, sent out the message, linked below, to the opera community, advising everyone that this event has been cancelled. This comes as a disappointment to all of us, but is a necessary measure during these extraordinary times.
While our primary concern is the health and welfare of our OVI members and our greater community, we will miss the opportunity to gather together, to share resources and information, to celebrate our Partners in Excellence, Projects of Special Merit and Grant awardees and to enjoy the camaraderie of old friends and new. We don’t want our members to miss those opportunities and so are working to incorporate as much of the scheduled conference activities into our Fall Focus Meeting in Chicago this October. We will keep you informed as those plans develop and we hope you will all take the opportunity to join us in the fabulous city of Chicago!
