Message from the Trustees

Re: All events postponed until further notice

To all members, trustees and EDs. CC Jayne Briggs and Dan Timmins
Dear Parent,
I am writing to you about the Dark Peak Music Foundation’s classes, rehearsals and concerts.
We have considered advice from a number of quarters and particularly taken into account the government’s firm advice about the need to practice “social distancing” and limit all unnecessary social contact.
We have therefore just taken the decision to suspend all rehearsals, classes, concerts and other activities with immediate effect and until further notice. This includes all ensembles, theory classes, Supertonics and Concerts.
This is clearly a difficult thing for our members who get so much, socially and musically from their weekly trips to the music centres, but we are very clear that we must put health and our community obligations first.
We do want to keep the spirit of Dark Peak alive over the period of closure and so Jeff and I will be looking at developing online events and activities to keep us in contact with one another and engaged in the music and social life that Dark Peak brings. We don’t really know what it will entail and so would welcome any help or ideas.
The Poland Trip is under review and we will be considering the position as the situation becomes clearer in the next couple of months.
Please do carry on making music and give us your ideas for online activities.
Best wishes
Andy Zuntz
Dark Peak Music Foundation
