Siskiyou Singers cancel spring concerts after COVID-19 breakout
After a handful of recent COVID-19 cases among members of Siskiyou Singers, the Ashland-based choir’s board of directors decided Thursday to cancel the group’s spring 2022 concerts, which had been scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, May 7-8, at the Southern Oregon University Music Recital Hall in Ashland.
“It is heartbreaking to cancel performances just before they were to happen,” board President Howie Seay said in a press release. “Performing arts organizations around the world have been forced to adapt and adjust throughout this years-long pandemic, and Siskiyou Singers is no different. ... We must put the safety of our members and our audience first. We will miss seeing our audiences again this spring, and we look forward to singing for the community again this fall.”
Siskiyou Singers will celebrate its 40th anniversary this fall and will mark the occasion with a special series of concerts in December. Director Mark Reppert has selected two of Mozart’s most lively, beautiful pieces — the “Coronation Mass” and the “Regina Coeli,” with both pieces to be performed with full orchestra.
