We have known for a while of course that we probably would not be able to gather for EX 8 in Virginia Beach in mid- May. With the announcement of a “stay at home order” for Virginia until June 10th, we knew it was time to make it official. It is very sad of course - but, as Giulia said this morning about it - "because we can't get together this year just means the next get-together will be that much more meaningful and precious."
This is what we wrote in an email to folks last night -
“Music is so good for the soul, and during these hard times we must all help each other to find moments of joy. Keep smiling and keep singing."
(Hope that works - I don’t often post videos!)
