Over the past several weeks we, like many, have been waiting and watching with hope for a sign that gathering together again in large groups would be safe and welcome. Today we accept with sadness that this is not to be, and announce that our 2020 Festival, Carte Blanche!, will not take place this June as planned. The health and safety of all is paramount and our hearts go out to those who are on the front lines confronting the reality of a pandemic.
While we are heartbroken not to be bringing live performances to the stage for our beloved audiences, our community of musicians are already remarkably and resiliently working with us to reschedule Carte Blanche! in 2021.
Please stay tuned.. Thanks to our Digital Performance Library on YouTube, radio station WCLV, and so many other new and fun ways to connect nothing will deter us from the mission that inspired us: “to nurture a deep family-like connection between musicians and audiences of all ages.”
Music is alive and well and we will all be together again soon.
Yours in music,
Franklin Cohen and Diana Cohen, Co-Artistic Directors
