SMC Update: COVID-19

Apr 22, 2020

NSO's Summer Music Camp & COVID-19

COVID-19 UPDATE: With uncertainty surrounding the future of summer programs for organizations across our country, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the NSO's Summer Music Camp this July for the safety of your childrens and families, our camp staff, and the general public. At this time we cannot proceed with planning and registration for our programming that is built on group instruction, ensemble-based performances, and team building, while restrictions remain in place for schools, businesses, and group gatherings of any size. 

If you have already registered for SMC 2020, the following options are available to you:

  1. Donate the value of your child(ren)’s registration to the Niagara Symphony Orchestra in return for a tax receipt; or, 
  2. Request a refund of the full price of the registration to your original method of payment. All refunds will be issued by the end of the month.

If you are already registered, you will be contacted directly by Brody Smith regarding your desposit/fees for SMC 2020. Given our need to cancel amid a highly uncertain time in the non-profit arts sector, we kindly encourage you to consider Option 1. Any support you can offer would be greatly appreciated during these difficult times. Rest assured the Niagara Symphony Orchestra remains dedicated to its mission and community and will work hard to bring you and even better camp experience at SMC 2021!
