Dear friends of Voices of Music, In response to the domestic spread of the COVID-19 virus, and in following the

recommendations of the San Francisco Department of Public Health,

the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management and the Santa Clara County Public Health Department,

Voices of Music has decided to cancel our Bach and Buxtehude concerts on April 2, 3 and 5, 2020.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, but the health and well-being of our patrons, musicians,

volunteers and staff are our top priority. The following options are available for those who have already

purchased tickets to canceled concerts:

• Donate your tickets, and receive a tax deduction for the

total ticket value—your donation will help defray the cost of paying our musicians a decent cancellation fee.

• Exchange your tickets for a gift certificate, which can be used at any time.

• Receive a refund for the value of the ticket.

For assistance, please contact the Box Office by phone at 415-377-4444 or 415-260-4687,

or email Greta at Greta@voicesofmusic.org.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we sort out the many implications we are faced with

in this situation. We understand this news may bring disappointment. Please accept our gratitude for your

understanding and support. Hanneke van Proosdij and David Tayler, Directors

Stuart Offer, President
