Cancellation of the 2020 Kiwanis Music Festival
The Kiwanis Music Festival of London that was planned for March 30 to April 22, 2020 has been cancelled by a unanimous decision of the Board. This follows the decision of the Province of Ontario to close all publicly funded schools to enact social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The decision was made with a review of the information issued by the Ministries of Health for Ontario and Canada.
Social responsibility is a tenet of the Kiwanis Music Festival. Protecting the well-being of all involved is paramount. It is our duty to act in the best interests of everyone involved in the Festival due to the health issue that has become a global pandemic.
We are aware that the youth participating, their teachers, their families and friends who attend the Festival will be disappointed with this decision. The Festival is a musical highlight for the youth involved. Each year it is a highly anticipated event. Even at this difficult time, we remain optimistic that the festival will continue to positively impact the lives of local musicians in the future.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this decision may cause. We will be refunding the entry fees towards the end of May. Entrants will be contacted directly about the return of their fees.
Thank you for your anticipated support and understanding. Should you have questions, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
