Orvieto Musica 2020 and COVID-19

A Statement Regarding COVID-19

March 15, 2020

We are continuing to plan for Orvieto Musica 2020, hopeful that the health situation in Italy will have eased enough by May for it to be safe for us all to travel to Italy in June.  We hope this not only for our participants, faculty, and staff, but also because we know that our presence in Orvieto this summer would be a real encouragement to our friends and colleagues in Orvieto.

What an unprecedented time we are in, though! Plans seem to be changing by the hour, and we’re sure that is causing everyone stress, uncertainty, and alarm. We at Orvieto Musica are equally concerned, although very hopeful. 

Our fundamental concern is for the health, safety and well-being of our participants, faculty and staff, however, and so we may need to decide that we cannot travel to Orvieto this summer. 

The Board of Directors of OM, staff, and faculty are in conversation and are working together to make the best decision.  In the course of our discussions we are taking the lead of the US State Department, the CDC, and the WHO.  

Although our recruiting is going along apace we do still have a few openings in our programs as we sometimes do have in March.  Please reach out to us for more details. 

Warm regards, 
Alexandra Plattos Sulack
President, Board of Directors
