Per email from Patsy Meiser 12-10-2021. This event has been cancelled.
As of this afternoon, I've cancelled the 2021 London/Oxford Harmony Festival. My heart is still a bit fractured, but I do believe this was the best decision. I've requested that it be postponed until 2023. I chose 2023 instead of 2022, because I want you to have ample time with your choruses to prepare for the festival and to market the performing tour to bring in somewhere between 200 and 300 singers....the original plan, way back in the initial planning stage. Before all this covid happened, we had approximately 100 - 120 participants. As you know, $100 of the tour fee goes to SAI for educational purposes and we want to present a very large check to them. Right? Right!
I will return all deposits made or hold them for the 2023 tour, whichever your ladies prefer. I plan to write to everyone who registered and will do that within a few days. I'd like to wait until I hear from the vendor company with a date for 2023. Do you think we could do 2022? I'm open to that, also, but I know you want your performing groups to be GREAT and we won't know about group rehearsals for a while, will we?
This is a heartbreaker, of course, but we can handle a small disappointment to have our world healthy before crossing "the pond".
Thank you for your understanding and I so hope I haven't created an issue for any of you.
