Due to concerns and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sitka Music Festival will not be hosting any public events in June 2020. Although we remain hopeful that preventative measures we take now as individuals, communities, states, and a nation will result in life being closer to normal by June, it seems unwise to plan on it.
At this time, we are still planning to host the Sitka International Cello Seminar July 20-August 10, which always includes a number of community performances in various locations across Sitka, plus the popular “Cello-bration” concert scheduled for August 8. We are also exploring the possibility of shifting some traditional June Festival events into August, perhaps presenting a concert or two paired with one of our special events if possible. Additionally, we are looking at ways to stream unique musical content via the internet over the next few months.
Stay tuned to this site, our social media channels, and our email updates for announcements of new performance opportunities as we’re able to put them together. THANK YOU for understanding, and for your continued support of chamber music in Alaska.
