Dear Choristers, Friends of The Philharmonic Society of Selangor and all music lovers.
As the nation's oldest performing arts organisation, its important for us to lead by example. And as an inter-generational community choir, our decisions are always underscored by what is best for our collective community and safety is paramount in this decision making process. Which is why, weeks before any official announcements were made by the authorities the Choir had collectively agreed to stop all rehearsals and as such our concert scheduled for July 2020 would be postponed as well. A tough, sad decision but a necessary one. When the fog lifts, we'll update you on new dates.
These are unusual times but as a community we can overcome this. Right now solidarity, empathy and community spirit are paramount - you don't have to be physically present to share the love - technology will keep us connected in the best and safest way possibly. Keep your spirits high and be sensible as you go about leading your lives. Follow the rules of the Government's restricted movement directives and the Ministry of Health guidelines. It's there for our common good.
But above all KEEP SINGING and let's keep our lives filled with music. In all of this uncertainty, we can still be calm, productive (or in some cases, take a much needed rest) and try to keep your joy quotient high. Take time in the next few weeks to create your own music soundtrack, you might surprise yourself.
We'll see you all soon ❤️
Sing in joy and stay well,
Brenda and the PSS Management Committee.
