2019-2020 Season Closing

With the COVID-19 pandemic causing the cancellation of all public gatherings, we missed seeing our loyal patrons at our Theodicy Jazz Collective event in May. It was an abrupt end to an otherwise wonderful season.

However, we recognize the importance of protecting our musicians and audience members from further spread of the coronavirus, and ask for your patience and support as we navigate these uncertain times.

Fortunately, there are still many reasons to be positive about the future, and they start with you, our loyal patrons and donors.

Tickets for the 2020-2021 season are now on sale and we are hopeful that our events can go on as planned. We are preparing to ensure our audience seating is “socially distanced” and we are investigating other measures if needed to help prevent the risk of infection.
