Exploring and performing great music of the 20th and 21st centuries, and promoting education and advancement of young composers.
Dear Fearless Friends,
As you know, when it comes to new music written by living composers, we at Fear No Music don’t play it safe. Part of our mission is to challenge traditional notions of whose music belongs in the concert hall, and whose stories should be told.
However, in the face of a serious public health event of global magnitude, we’re not quite so reckless. We respectfully listen to the experts in the field, and will comply with any restrictions put on large gatherings. The well-being of the community we serve has to be our top priority, and in this case, the evidence of social distancing as a valuable mitigation technique to fight the spread of COVID-19 is indisputable.
Postponing our events is not what we want to do, but given the circumstances, it’s the most socially responsible action we can take. Our thoughts are with all of you as we endure this crisis together. With gratitude for the brave healthcare workers fighting tirelessly to keep us safe, we wish you all good health. We’ll see you next time, with open ears and open hearts (and clean hands).
