As concerns over the coronavirus continue and a new way of life is shaping for all across the global, here in Northeast Ohio events continue to be cancelled or postponed. This afternoon the Cleveland Orchestra announced that it will cancel all of its concerts and activities scheduled in April and May.
In a press release this afternoon, President & CEO of The Cleveland Orchestra, André Gremillet says ““Much has changed in our daily lives and routines in a very short period due to efforts to secure the health and safety of everyone here in Northeast Ohio and around the country,” he continued by saying “Our gratitude goes out to all the people working on the front lines to contain the coronavirus — the healthcare workers and other heroes caring for those in need daily, all the other essential services workers, and to those facing the toughest decisions each day for the collective good of us all. For more than 100 years, through the best of times and the worst of times, The Cleveland Orchestra has sought to serve this community with fortitude, dedication, and pride. We are all being challenged once more, as we face changes that will carry us through this crisis toward the resumption of everyday schedules and the return of social gatherings, events, and performances. Working together as a community, I am confident that we will weather this storm.”
Gremillet is encouraging all to continue to share music and by doing that we can to help make the world a better place.
