COVID-19 Update

Dear Rackham Choir Patrons and Supporters:

As you are aware, Governor Whitmer has declared a state of emergency in Michigan. With that action, the state issued guidance strongly urging the public to avoid gatherings of 100 or more people and to consider cancelling events like concerts.

In accordance with the Governor’s recommendations, and because we don’t want to compromise the health of our patrons or performers, we have decided to suspend our performances for the remainder of this season. Please stay safe and stay healthy.
