Dear Bedford Chamber Concert Patrons,

We hope that you are healthy and in good spirits.  We are writing to update you on the status of our concerts.  New York State has begun the process of re-opening in phases.  Bedford Chamber Concerts, as an Arts, Entertainment and Recreation event, is not eligible to open until after the conclusion of Phase Four.  The timing is uncertain because a spike in COVID cases could restart the re-opening timeline. 

Therefore, in consideration of these uncertainties, we have decided to delay the opening of the 2020/2021 concert season until 2021.  No concerts will be scheduled for the months of October, November and December 2020.  This is a disappointing outcome, but we believe that it is in best interest of our audience members, musicians, and volunteers.  In December we will revisit whether it would be safe and practical to schedule spring concerts, and we will communicate that decision to you.

The Marvelous Music from St. Matthew’s videos have been a wonderful way to stay connected with exceptional chamber music during these unusual and difficult times.  We hope that you have been enjoying them.  If you have not been receiving them, please reply to this e-mail with your correct e-mail address, and you will be added to the list.

Best wishes,

The Bedford Chamber Concert Committee
