Letter from the President.

Included are things that we are going to do to make this season as safe as possible.

9

The first two performances will be held outside (weather permitting). We will move inside if needed. The Thunder and Lightning stage will be set up in the parking lot between the port and the auditorium to accommodate our artists.

9

We encourage you to bring your own lawn chairs as you would for Symphonic Blast or Sunday night band concerts in Crapo Park. (Chairs will be available.)

9

Masks will be encouraged.

9

Social distancing guidelines will be maintained.

9

Season ticket holders will have a VIP seating arrangement.

Continued planning and updating will precede each performance to follow current protocols.

Because of social distancing, once we move inside you will not be in reserved seats. We ask for understanding with this as we want to keep all safe. The arena will be organized to help with maintaining this and our ushers will direct seating opportunities as you enter and exit.

Note: The Auditorium’s capacity is over 2,000 seats. At 50% capacity, we could accommodate over 1,000 people. Our intention is not to “oversell.” While this will have a less-than favorable impact on our finances, we are confident we can make this work, that you will all cooperate and we can have a successful 2020-21 season.

The first two concerts have the following changes:

9

Tuesday, September 15

9

Shaun Johnson’s Big Band Experience and Tonic Sol-Fa

Friday, October 2

Farewell Angelina

David Kroll’s Country Christmas remains the same on December 19. 2021 may bring additional changes but at this time concerts remain intact. Please check our website www.burlcivicmusic.com and Facebook page for updates.

Our header photo was shot by Holly Carpenter who was born and raised in Burlington. She started doing photography in the early 2000s with what, a the time, was a very familiar camera: the point and shoot. Shortly after she upgraded to the SLR. In 2008, she joined the world of digital. And without any formal classes or training, Holly began pursuing a career as a photographer. Her learning process included reading tons of books, a lot of trial and error and, too many Youtube videos to count during which she discovered a love for night photography. The header image is just one example of her passion and discovery of the beauty that can be found in the night that surrounds us. If you want to see more, Holly sells her work every year at the Annual Craft Show held at Memorial Auditorium the first full weekend in December. Stop by to say hello.

All of Holly’s photographs are available for purchase. You can see more of her work @ https://pixels.com/profiles/holly-carpenter.
