Coronavirus (COVID-19) - UPDATED 3/27/2020

MEMO TO: Concert Associations
May 8 still appears to be the end of the CDC’s directive to avoid large gatherings. With the daily news stream it seems increasingly likely that no concerts will occur in May. This probably means that all of Allied’s spring tours will be postponed including your schedule performances.
From what we’ve heard, the large majority of you hope to reschedule the postponed concerts. Allied would strongly prefer to reschedule as many concerts as possible. The artists very strongly hope to play the concerts on a rescheduled tour basis. So that’s what we’re going to try hard to do!
Unfortunately the fluid nature of the coronavirus pandemic makes finding a firm and safe date from which to begin rescheduling difficult. Yet if we don’t optimistically look ahead and make plans, it will be impossible to instantly turn the concert switch on once the “all clear” is formally announced. We have been discussing available tour periods with the artists. Many of these tours will be in June/July and if it turns out that safety needs will not permit, then we’ll reassess. Quite of few dates will have to be moved into the 20-21 season and we’ll do our best to maximize time between shows.
Paul and I believe that there are better days ahead! Live performing arts will eventually return to form the backbone of your community cultural life. The performances will serve as a joyous opportunity to once again see and socialize with your family, friends and neighbors while enjoying a talented and entertaining artist.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us.

Morgan County Community Concerts Association (MCCCA) is a non-profit membership organization committed to bringing artists and South Central Indiana area audiences together in a high quality, affordable concert series. This world class concert series provides an opportunity to share and enhance the musical experience of our diverse community. Our Board of Directors is dedicated to cultivating an interest and appreciation in music and the performing arts in Morgan County and in the teaching of music, history of music, and music appreciation in our schools.
Community leaders founded The Morgan County Community Concert Association, in 1994 in a community that is below average in income and cultural opportunities. MCCCA is striving to provide cultural events to every local man, woman, and child in Morgan County, many of who might not otherwise be exposed to such performances.
Many famous musicians came up through the community concert circuit and our past performances have been an essential mix of renowned artists and young performers on their way to prominence.
MCCCA places special emphasis on student outreach and provides concerts in elementary schools each year and brings classroom to the Martinsville, Monrovia and Mooresville High Schools whenever possible. These rotating concerts are held during regular school day hours with the cooperation of the various artists scheduled for the regular concert series. Students are allowed question and answer time with the artists and then encouraged to bring their parents free of charge to the regularly scheduled concert.
