As you are probably aware, effective today, Friday, March 13, the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District (NLESD) has suspended all extra-curricular activities involving interaction between different school populations until further notice in an effort to contain the potential community spread of the COVID-19 virus.
As a result the Kiwanis Club of Grand Falls Windsor Music Festival Committee has no choice but to cancel the Music Festival scheduled March 22-27, 2020. We deeply regret having to take this action, especially for the participants who have been working diligently to prepare for their performances.
The Music Festival Committee will meet in the near future to look at whether the festival can be held later in the spring or be cancelled entirely for 2020. We want to thank all of those involved for their understanding and support during this time.
For those who have purchased tickets to the Highlight Concert for Friday, March 27, 2020, the Gordon Pinsent Centre for the Arts is asking anyone who has tickets for any events that have been suspended, to hold on to their tickets in case postponed events are rescheduled.
