Effective immediately, following guidelines released by Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health on March 11 in response to the increasing challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19, Hillcrest Wind Ensemble (HWE) will suspend all rehearsals and public performances until at least April 20, 2020, which is the first rehearsal for the Cabaret concert (when this policy will be re-evaluated and future rehearsals determined based on the situation at that time). It is not possible for us to enforce the restriction of social distancing at 6 to 10 feet between each person at either rehearsals or concerts. This means that our two Spring Festival concerts scheduled during this time, including the performances at First United Methodist Church of Chula Vista on Sunday, March 29 and at Bankers Hill Club on Saturday, April 18 are hereby canceled. While the April concert falls outside of the current time frame indicated by the government guidelines, since we are canceling rehearsals, we would not be prepared to perform this concert. Our highest priority is to protect the health and well-being of our members. We will continue to monitor the situation closely for future performances as this anxious situation unfolds.
HWE's commitment to the health and safety of our audience and musicians is paramount, and though these steps are difficult and painful, it is necessary to take them. HWE has approached the unfolding coronavirus situation with seriousness and care, and we have not made these decisions lightly. We wish to take every possible measure to ensure the continuing health and well-being of our audience and musicians.
We will continue to post regular updates on our website, social media channels, and to communicate via Email.
Thank you for your understanding,
Board of Directors
