(Boise, Idaho – March 18, 2020) The Executive Board of Boise Music Week announced today that all Boise Music Week events of the 2020 season have been cancelled in support of our community’s efforts to limit the effects of the Corona Virus pandemic. For the first time since the inaugural 1919 season, no Boise Music Week events will be held.
The Executive Board recognizes the impact this decision has on our performers, volunteers, venue providers, and on all of our friends and supporters affected by this historic circumstance. Our primary interest is the safety of all involved.
Beverly Schumacher, President of Boise Music Week, expresses her appreciation to the event chairs, performers, directors, production staff, and our community partners for their efforts in preparation for the 2020 season. The Executive Board would continue to welcome tax-deductible donations online or mailed to P.O. Box 155, Boise, ID 83701-0155.
We encourage everyone to remember the power of music during this challenging time. It is our plan to bring you this unique celebration of music next spring, and hope to see you all in 2021.
