COVID-19: Event Cancellations and Updates

 
 

Tuesday, April 14, 2020

 

Here at DCINY we have been monitoring the latest updates in New York City and across the world. We have been in regular communication with the halls and the local health authorities as we coordinate our response to the ongoing and ever-changing situation related to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

 

Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center have announced that they will be closed for all public events and programming through the summer in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus and in support of governmental mandates. DCINY fully supports the difficult decision made by both venues and authorities, and share in their feeling that the health and safety of performers and concertgoers is top priority. In response to this announcement all DCINY performance residencies, associated rehearsals and concert activities, are officially cancelled by the venue and the city for the months of March through June, 2020. We are receiving additional feedback from all relevant agencies to further understand the current situation, and will continue to share relevant information as quickly as we are receiving it.

 

We are so thankful for all of the hard work and dedication from all of our participating artists, performers and VIPS. We know you have all dedicated yourselves towards creating an incredible musical experience and we share in the disappointment that we’re unable to go forward with our planned performances.

 

DCINY looks forward to resuming our season as programmed in the Fall of 2020 coordinating with our venues’ reopening and local health authorities approving the return to normalcy. We thank you for your patience as we navigate this evolving situation together. As always, we are dedicated to the creation of powerful and life changing events here in New York City and look forward to continuing our work together.

 

For those performers and VIP Patrons impacted by NYC venue cancellations, our team is in touch with your directors and/or tour leaders about next step solutions. Please connect with your director for additional information.

 

For audience members who had purchased concert tickets, refunds have been processed or will soon be refunded in full by the venue and/or DCINY. For further inquiries, please email BoxOffice@DCINY.org

 

DCINY’s July, 2020, performance tour of New Zealand has been postponed to 2021. Please contact Diane@DCINY.org with questions.

As an update to our notice below, please know that we are monitoring public closures with both venues and the city on a regular basis. Current plans for concert venues to reopen as of May 10, 2020, remain in place and we are communicating with ensembles and partners directly to discuss individual situations and gather information. DCINY will update all affected groups of any changes to the status of our planned May and June performances.

 

For those performers impacted by venue cancellations in March and April, our team is in touch with your directors and/or tour leaders about next step solutions. Please connect with your director for additional information. For audience members who had March or April concert tickets, all ticket purchases have been refunded in full by the venue and/or DCINY.

 

We hope that everyone remains safe and healthy. We all look forward to a return to normalcy and a time that we can make music together once again.

Dear DCINY Performers, VIPS, and Audience Members,

 

Just like you, our team here at DCINY has been monitoring the latest updates here in New York City. We have been in regular communication with the halls and the local health authorities as we coordinate our response to the ongoing and ever-changing situation related to the new coronavirus (COVID-19). Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center have announced that they will be closed for all public events and programming through May 10, 2020 in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus. Federal, State and City government has additionally announced restrictions shuttering concert venues and theatres.

 

DCINY fully supports the difficult decision made by both venues and authorities, and share in their feeling that the health and safety of performers and concertgoers is top priority. In response to this announcement all DCINY performance residencies during the months of March and April, and associated rehearsals and concert activities, are officially cancelled by the venue and the city. We are receiving additional feedback from all relevant agencies to further understand the current situation, and will continue to share information as quickly as we are receiving it.

 

We are so thankful for all of the hard work and dedication from all of our participating artists, performers and VIPS. We know you have all dedicated yourselves towards creating an incredible musical experience and we share in the disappointment that we’re unable to go forward with our planned March performances.

 

DCINY looks forward to resuming our season as programmed as soon as the venues confirm reopening and it is deemed safe by local health authorities. We thank you for your patience as we navigate this evolving situation together. As always, we are dedicated to the creation of powerful and life changing events here in New York City and look forward to continuing our work.
