Dear Friends of the BB&B Society,
 
It is with sincere regret that we announce the cancellation of our April 26, 2020 concert. As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has dreadfully impacted the arts community nationwide. Given the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advice, Governor Baker’s imposed restrictions, and most importantly, our concern for the health and welfare of our audience, musicians and staff, we have no alternative but to end our 2020 season without the final concert.
 
For those who already have tickets, we offer three options:
• donate your tickets to the BB&B Society, which will help us secure our next season
• exchange your tickets for tickets to any concert next season
• request a full refund
 
Given all of the work we have put into making this season a success, we are deeply saddened by this circumstance. Nonetheless, we are now focused on securing next year’s season, helping to stabilize the enterprise as well as the financial security of our marvelous freelance professional musicians. We thank you for your wonderful support during this past season, and look forward to continuing to bring more inspiring performances to you and the Boston community.
 
If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at mimi@bbbsociety.org
 
Wishing you all the best of health,
 
Mimi Bartley
General Manager
