Dear Friends of Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra,

First and foremost, we hope this letter finds you safe and well during these challenging times. I want to THANK YOU for your support during this 70th Anniversary season and hope to see you at an upcoming concert or event once this difficult time has passed! In the meantime,

Here’s what’s happening with the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra:

Choral Masters Concert Cancelled. Following Federal and local guidelines, we have cancelled the Choral Masters concert scheduled for April 17th.

#FSOStrong. The FSO is working hard to remain strong and vibrant during this period. There is certainly strength and beauty in music, and we want to continue to share that with you through our #FSOStrong campaign, featuring musicians from the FSO performing from their homes. Please check out our first selection here, featuring cellist Andrew Hamby and follow us on Facebook for more performances.

Beethoven 5K Postponed. Out of caution, we have postponed our Beethoven 5K run until July 18th. It will be at the beautiful Buffalo Park on McMillan Mesa. Learn more and register at https://www.flagstaffsymphony.org/2020-special-events/

We are hopeful that the COVID-19 pandemic will resolve by June, and that we will be able to produce our June events. However, the safety of our patrons is of the utmost importance, and we will cancel or postpone these events if necessary.

“No Strings Attached” Golf Tournament. For now, we are moving forward with our plans for the “No Strings Attached” Golf Tournament on June 6th at the Continental Country Club Golf Course. This will be a wonderful way to get outdoors, enjoy lively competition and a sense of community while supporting the FSO. Learn more at https://www.flagstaffsymphony.org/golf/

Summer Pops at Ft. Tuthill Amphitheater. We’re also moving ahead with our June 20 Summer Pops concert with Ann Hampton Callaway singing the Streisand Songbook. Tickets will be on sale soon! https://www.flagstaffsymphony.org/2020-special-events/

Arizona Gives Day, April 7th. This crisis is hitting all of our local businesses and non-profits hard. If you’re able, I hope you will consider giving to the FSO on Arizona Gives Day, Tuesday, April 7th. https://www.azgives.org/flagstaffsymphony. In order to support nonprofit organizations, taxpayers can deduct up to $300 in charitable donations from their taxable income for contributions made in 2020, as a part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. We ask that you consider donating to FSO on Arizona Gives Day.

Thank you for your support. Stay safe.

Sincerely,
Larry Lang

Executive Director
