Effective immediately....ALL CRS rehearsals, and performances have been put on hold for the moment. This means NO rehearsal tomorrow, and the following two weeks, and NO American Empress performances this month. All Oregon schools have shut down, and so has our access to rehearsal space at Warrenton HS. At the moment, the next CRS rehearsal will take place on Saturday, April 4th, 2020. With that said...there is LOTS that the CRS board will need to discuss in the coming weeks. Our number one priority at the moment is making sure that we keep everyone's safety and health the number one item. We will be contacting you within the next week and beyond with much more in what will happen with our current season and beyond. I will be updating the CRS Facebook messages (please share as you are able), and the CRS website. I will also be present at Warrenton HS tomorrow morning, to make sure that anyone who has not received this message will know what is going on.
Over the next day or two, I will send out a much more detailed message regarding these ever changing scenarios.
Everyone, enjoy time with family and continue to work on your music as you are able. We will be back as soon as we are able!
