Dear Lyra Friends,
We are sad to announce the cancellation of Lyra’s May concert and Celebration Ball. It has become clear that cancelling these events is the best action to take to help ensure the safety of our musicians and all of you in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
During these unprecedented and uncertain times Lyra needs your support. We are committed to paying our musicians at least 50% of their concert fees as they face months of lost work and growing financial instability. If it is financially possible for you, please consider these options:
- Click here to donate online to Lyra
- Donate the cost of your ticket to Lyra
- Request vouchers to use next season
- Request a refund
You may write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org to make these requests.
In the meantime, we have decided to resurrect the Lyra Ledger to help us stay connected while socially distancing. Subscribe to our Newsletter by entering your email at the bottom of the page, or by contacting email@example.com. This week’s edition includes:
- Passaggi Flashback – watch videos from Lyra’s Jan 25, 2020 performance with Bruce Dickey, cornetto
- Q&A With Lyra Musicians – if you have your own questions to ask, for the group or for specific musicians, write to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Upcoming Live Stream Concerts – information about concerts online given by Jennifer Lang (violin) and Charles Asch (cello)
As always, we are sending our best to you, your neighbors, and the entire community—with hopes to stay healthy and help each other during this difficult time.
