Hello Solano Winds family,
I hope this note finds you well. The Solano Winds Board of Directors is highly optimistic and very excited about resuming musical activities soon! Our intent is to begin rehearsals on Aug 17, 2021. The time and place are TBD. To that end, we ask you to take a moment and complete this very quick survey letting us know your intentions about returning with us: https://forms.gle/MxwaEt8rpemaPRaE8
Of course, the vaccination roll out and the subsequent decrease in the prevalence of the virus has impacted all of this in a very positive way. At a recent Board of Directors meeting, it was decided that all musicians must provide Solano Winds with either proof of vaccination or evidence of a negative COVID-19 test (no more than 72 hours old for PCR tests or 24 hours for antigen tests). Proof of vaccination would be required only once at the beginning of the season. Negative COVID tests would be required for each rehearsal/performance for non-vaccinated members. We styled these requirements after policies in place by the San Francisco Symphony and the San Francisco Giants. The fact that all musicians will either be vaccinated or COVID free will not only help us keep each other safe, but also provide another layer of security for our patrons.
In some happier news, we have successfully secured The Clubhouse at Rancho Solano for our “Season 25 Gala” on May 14, 2022. After yet another rescheduling, we now look forward even more to celebrating our heritage and resilience with you at the end of our next season. If you purchased a ticket for our Gala already, you should be hearing soon from our treasurer about the options that are available to you. Thank you for your support!
