A personal message to you from Aeolian Hall
…it’s way too quiet here!
The hall is dark and empty. The stage is silent. The merch counter is empty. The chairs are stacked. The PMCL is restless: choir members continue to rehearse their parts to make sure they are ready to return to the staff as soon as they can!
There is a strange silence at Bishop Cronyn: no children laughing, eating together, practicing their parts for the orchestra. There are no voices from the young choir working on the next concert. The dining room is empty, as are the kitchens. All you hear is your footsteps.
IT DOES NOT FEEL RIGHT/
Our lights are out and, like you we just wait for these weeks to unfold. The passion is still here, but the children, the artists and the audiences are not. We miss you all. We cannot wait until be are back to performance. Playing. Singing. Creating.
When will this social isolation be over and what will life look like afterwards? We don’t know the answers to these questions, but we do know that music and community can help inspire us during these dark times. We’re all in this together. Currently we have closed our doors while we weather the pandemic. While we wait, we still everything we can to ensure a successful season of live music and music education once we are able to re-open.
We end this month with out a revenue stream – this is so strange. And though we are doing everything we can in the, including writing grants and seeking sponsorships, we are looking to our community for help.
Even the smallest donation can help ensure our future. The best support you could give us now is a monthly donation to help us cover our basic operating expenses. Any size donation helps. For a donation of $20 or more, we can provide a charitable tax receipt.
Here are 4 easy ways to make that happen:
- A one time or monthly gift via CanadaHelps
- A cheque payable to Aeolian Hall Musical Arts Association and mailed to us at Aeolian Hall, 795 Dundas Street, London, Ontario, N5W 2Z6
- Call! Please feel free to leave us a phone message indicating your desire to make a donation at 519-672-7950 ext 101 and we will return your call as soon as possible.
- eTransfer directly sent from your bank account to firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime, let us entertain you with online video performances and stories. And please reach out to us and let us know how you are doing.
We’re in this together. And we’d like to stay connected. Write us at: email@example.com
