Dear Camerata friends - Due to the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic, Symphony Nova Scotia has cancelled the remainder of the 2019-20 season, and this includes our performances of the upcoming Bach Mass in b minor and the May performances of Fidelio. While this is sad news for Jeff and the choir, we are also thinking of our SNS colleagues, staff and other musical friends across the country. This is a hard time for everyone, and music, which should be there to provide solace, is greatly impacted. If you are able, please consider donating your ticket purchase back to the Symphony or other arts organizations who are negatively impacted at this time.

Like everyone, our primary concern is for the health and safety of our community, our singers, our audience and all of us. The Camerata Board will be meeting (virtually!) to discuss plans for our June concerts, and will let you know what's happening as soon as possible. You can continue to contact us through our Contact Us links on the website, and hear us on our YouTube channel.

Stay safe and be well.
