University Heights Symphonic Band postpones performances until Summer 2021

Dear friends,

These are certainly unprecedented times. To say the last few months have been strange and difficult for all of us would be an enormous understatement. I can speak for all of us at The University Heights Symphonic Band when I say that not being able to perform for you during this time is challenging for us.

In the interest of everyone’s safety — you, our musicians and our volunteers — we have decided to postpone our performances until it is safe for us to play for live audiences again. We are constantly evaluating the ever-changing COVID situation, and we are optimistic that things will be looking up next summer and we are developing plans to safely present our performances again.

In the coming months, UHSB musicians will be getting together in small, socially-distanced groups outside to record some new content to help us all get through these difficult times in the hopes that we will be able to gather together again as a full band in 2021. Until then, please follow the Band on FacebookTwitterInstagram and our website for the latest announcements and online performances.

Our commitment to providing our community with the finest live performances possible is unwavering, even during this difficult time. We deeply appreciate your continued support and hope that we get to see you all again very soon. From all of us at the University Heights Symphonic Band, thank you. 

With very best wishes for health and hope,

Matthew Salvaggio
Music Director, University Heights Symphonic Band
