We have been in regular communication with NYC Concert halls and the local health authorities as we coordinate our response to the ongoing and ever-changing situation related to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center have announced that they will be closed for all public events and programming through the end of 2020 in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus and in support of governmental mandates. DCINY fully supports the difficult decision made by both venues and authorities, and share in their feeling that the health and safety of performers and concertgoers is top priority. In response to this announcement all DCINY performance residencies, associated rehearsals and concert activities, are officially postponed by the venue and the city for the months of March through December, 2020. We are receiving additional feedback from all relevant agencies to further understand the current situation, and will continue to share relevant information as quickly as we are receiving it.
We are so thankful for all of the hard work and dedication from all of our participating artists, performers and VIPs. We know you have all dedicated yourselves towards creating an incredible musical experience and we share in the disappointment that we’re unable to go forward with our planned performances in 2020.
DCINY looks forward to resuming our robust season as programmed in 2021 coordinating with our venues’ reopening and local health authorities approving the return to normalcy. We thank you for your patience as we navigate this evolving situation together. As always, we are dedicated to the creation of powerful and life changing events here in New York City and look forward to continuing our work together.
For those performers and VIP Patrons impacted by these announcements, our team is in touch with your directors and/or tour leaders about next step solutions. Please connect with your director for additional information.
For audience members who had purchased concert tickets, refunds have been processed or will soon be refunded in full by the venue and/or DCINY. For further inquiries, please email BoxOffice@DCINY.org
DCINY’s July, 2020, performance tour of New Zealand has been postponed to 2021. Please contact Diane@DCINY.org with questions.
