IC&C 2020 is CANCELLED
We are deeply saddened to inform you that we must cancel our 2020 International Convention & Contests scheduled for November in Louisville, Kentucky. Your International Board of Directors has significant concerns about members safely attending IC&C, despite the endless list of safety protocols established by the venue. In addition, the dangers presented by COVID-19 make it unsafe for chapters to rehearse based on recent facts shared by scientists and medical experts.*
We are currently negotiating with the Galt House to mitigate, and hopefully eliminate, any penalties associated with canceling our IC&C. At this time, we are optimistic that we can accomplish this. As we take all of these factors into consideration, nothing matters more than you! Our number one priority is, and always will be, the health and safety of our members.
Needless to say, I am devastated, and I know you are as well. We have lost so much this year, and IC&C was the one event we were looking forward to – our chance to enjoy the friendship of our Harmony sisters. Sadly, we cannot safely sing with our chapters, travel, or come together to socialize and celebrate. Without these things, we are lost. My heart hurts for us. Nevertheless, we will fight through this difficult time just as we have battled all the challenges Harmony has faced in our 61-year history.
Over the past few months, our focus has shifted from in-person gatherings to virtual rehearsals and training sessions, and we remain committed to keeping you connected to Harmony, Inc. until we can sing together again. With over 2,000 creative women in our organization, we will find those opportunities. Please contact me at [email protected] and share your ideas. I want to hear from you! Working together, we will come through this difficult time with stronger minds, voices, and hearts!
Please watch for more information soon regarding how to request refunds for contest entry fees and pre-registered AEPs.
Together we are HARMONY. STRONGER.Yours in Harmony,
