BPA cancels symphony/chorus collaboration performance in April

BPA cancels symphony/chorus collaboration performance in April

A collaborative production featuring Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra and Bainbridge Chorale slated for April has been canceled, according to a message sent by Bainbridge Performing Arts spokeswoman Sally Jo Martine Thursday morning.

The combined musicians were to perform “A German Requiem” on Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26 at BPA.

“The leadership teams of Bainbridge Performing Arts, Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra, and Bainbridge Chorale have reached the sad decision to cancel the April concert,” Martine said. “We do hope to return to the project in the indeterminate future, but all is up in the air, as with so many things at the moment.”

BPA officials had recently announced the nonprofit was closing “in response to growing concerns around the COVID-19 risks posed by public gatherings.”

All 12 BPA staff employees will primarily work off-site.

In a message sent via email, and also posted to the production company’s website on Friday, March 6, BPA executive director Dominique Cantwell said that performances at BPA, as well as classes, rehearsals, and meetings, have been postponed indefinitely due to the novel coronavirus outbreak.
