COVID-19 Update

In accordance with Gov. DeWine’s mandate to temporarily suspend gatherings of more than 100 people we have postponed our Lake Effect Concert Band’s concert scheduled for March 20 in Painesville. We do plan to reschedule it when the mandate is lifted.

Erring on the side of caution, we have also decided to postpone the Low Brass Wokshop scheduled for this Sunday at the Kirtland Community Center. This will also be rescheduled at a later date.

Registration for the Blizzard Youth Winds summer session that was scheduled to open April 1 may be delayed until we have a better idea what the situation is with gatherings and venues going forward.

We’ll keep you updated as information becomes available. Stay healthy everyone!
