The Valley Concert Society announces that the concert with the Manhattan Chamber
Players will not take place as scheduled on Friday, March 13, at the Matsqui Centennial
Auditorium. We regret the inconvenience to our audience but support the need to practice
caution and restraint in these challenging times caused by the spread of COVID-19.
The Manhattan Chamber Players informed us late yesterday of their decision not to travel
in these circumstances, but left open the possibility of rescheduling this program at a time
when the current issues are resolved.

The society will refund the cost of tickets to those who purchased a ticket to this concert
alone. Alternatively ticket purchasers may choose to donate the cost of the ticket to the
society and receive a tax-deductible receipt. Call 604-289-3377 to let us know your
wishes. We will take the initiative to contact ticket holders that we do not hear from.
We will not take any action with regard to subscription holders until we know whether or
not this concert will be rescheduled for a later date and until the status of the concert
scheduled for May 1 is clear.

We wish you all good health and look forward to a time when we can again gather to
share the joys of the beautiful music that was planned for this and other programs.
