Music on the Levels announces that the concerts scheduled to take place on 29 March and 26 April will now not take place as planned.
‘We have taken the decision reluctantly’, says Music on the Levels committee chair, Paul Smith, ‘but think that it is the best interests of our audiences.
‘ We have taken seriously the advice from the church about not serving and sharing food during the current coronavirus outbreak and also considered that many of the people who come to concerts are among the most vulnerable in society.’
There are two further concerts in the season, on 31 May and 20 June, and the committee will decide whether these should go ahead next month.
It is hoped to present the postponed concerts in the next season. ‘We appreciate the effort that has gone into preparing for these concerts’, says Paul ‘and in particular the work of the students for the Platform for Young Musicians.’
