The program is changed and reduced from the one originally announced, and the number of musicians participating is fewer.
“With the (COVID-19) numbers on the rise in Outagamie County, we just felt it best to focus on the safety of our musicians, and not come together even in a group of 20,” said Jamie LaFreniere, executive director of the orchestra. “We desperately want to make music together, but can’t risk anyone’s health to do so.
“We hope to schedule another chamber orchestra in November, but of course, it will be dependent on current COVID-19 numbers in the area.”
