Important Updates

A Message from the President

Dear Musicale Members,

As we experience this “fall-out” from the Corona virus, we realize that we are in unchartered territory.  Never before have we weathered such a catastrophe, the cause of which we cannot see.  The negative news reports, the deaths, the shortages…It’s scary!

Hopefully, all Musicale members are taking the behavioral strategies seriously by staying home. 

To comply with said strategies, all Musicale chorus activities have been cancelled, including our practices and concerts.  It is possible, though not likely, that we will still convene on May 21st, at Port Huron Golf Club for our annual luncheon.  Please keep the luncheon date on your calendars. We will re-assess assess the situation in another few weeks.

Also in limbo for another few weeks are the scholarship auditions.  Applicants and teachers have been notified that every effort will be made to host the auditions either on the scheduled date or at some future date. 

Please pray for a quick resolution to this pandemic, and for the well-being of all.

In the meantime, stay home, wash your hands, use hand sanitizers, and practice social distancing. 

Gene Schucker


A message from the Scholarship Comittee

Dear Scholarship Applicants/Parents and Teachers,

As you may have assumed by now, we need to officially POSTPONE the April 24/25 scholarship auditions.  Because we have a desire to fulfill the work of The Port Huron Musicale in awarding the lesson scholarships for this coming year, our hope is to reschedule them in the summer or early fall.  There are so many unknowns, yet we will be diligent in assessing what is necessary to keep our community safe, but also to celebrate the musical studies of our wonderful young musicians by being able to provide auditions for and award these scholarships.

Please know you can contact me with any questions, but also that I will communicate in this fashion as we navigate these unprecedented waters together.

Maybe it's true for you, too, but I have found the most peace, comfort, and joy when making music with my family during this time.  Let's keep encouraging one another!
