Season Suspension: Welland Port Colborne Concert Association
We have been closely monitoring the devastating effects of the pandemic on our lives and especially on the performing arts community. We have been waiting for guidance on how to proceed as it has become clear that big theatres like the J.M. Ennis Auditorium will not be opening for concerts in the near future.
Our Board held a virtual meeting and came to the heart – breaking decision that we must suspend the 2020-2021 series. This decision has just been confirmed as the right one as the District School Board of Niagara has cancelled all rental permits for the coming school year.
We are working with the agents and artists to re-schedule the wonderful concerts we have booked until similar dates for 2021-2022. They are grateful that we have the trust and confidence to offer them hope for the following season. We will announce new dates once we are in a position to confirm that rental permits have been approved.
We suspend any further subscription sales at this time. We will be processing refunds for the ABBA Revisited show and for all patrons who renewed for 2020-21 season. This may be a time consuming process so please be patient while we work through the mechanics of issuing refunds. If you do not see your refund by August 15, 2020 please contact our Treasurer Rob Neill by email at firstname.lastname@example.org Once you have received your refund, please destroy all existing tickets. New ones will be available once we launch the 2021-2022 series next year.
This is a challenging time for us all and we will look forward to once again appreciating our live concerts as soon as it is possible to do so.
In the coming months stay well and upbeat until we can enjoy the camaraderie of sharing concert events with friends once again.
