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

President

A message from the Scholarship Comittee

Dear Scholarship Applicants/Parents and Teachers,


As we are all working in a time of many unknowns, please add the scholarship auditions to your list of "activities that may or may not happen as planned."  We have a desire to fulfill the work of The Port Huron Musicale in awarding the lesson scholarships for this coming year, so if the auditions are not able to occur at the end of April, please know that our hope is to reschedule them.  Audition times were supposed to be mailed out April 1, but we are putting a "hold" on that for now.  Our scholarship committee will be assessing all the necessary variables regarding compliance, safety, and respect in the next two weeks, and we will plan to communicate again with you.


In the meantime, we hope your love of music is helping you to navigate and find peace in these difficult times.


Sincerely,

The Port Huron Musicale Scholarship Committee

Michelle Carlson, Chairperson
