Dear Friends and Members,

The Board of Directors met March 16th to discuss how the evolving COVID-19 situation will affect CAMMAC’s operations, and to prepare a plan for moving forward.

We would like to assure everyone that the safety and security of our members, clients and team members will always be our first priority. We will continue to monitor the level of risk associated with COVID-19, and ensure that the decisions and measures implemented with regards to our planned events are effective, appropriate and clearly communicated to our members, clients and employees.

 

CAMMAC MUSIC CENTRE AND NATIONAL OFFICE

The current recommendation from the Québec government is to avoid unnecessary indoor gatherings. Recreational sites, training centres and performance spaces are ordered closed until at least March 30th, 2020, and we are complying with these obligations. We will take advantage of this unexpected shutdown to proceed with maintenance tasks. Once we are permitted to re-open, we will be making all the recommended modifications to our food services as well as our housekeeping operating procedures. We look forward to a healthy and happy summer!

 

  • BACH PLUS WEEKEND, SUMMER PROGRAMS & MUSICAL SUNDAYS FESTIVAL at the Music Centre:
    For the moment, these events are scheduled to proceed as planned, as these events fall outside of the current window of restrictions. Our cancellation and refund policies remain unchanged for the moment, but please be assured that we are monitoring the situation closely and changes will be implemented if necessary.

 

  • UPCOMING GROUP RENTALS are cancelled for the next 4 weeks. Case by case modifications are being made depending on group requirements, participant numbers as well as government directives. We are communicating with upcoming groups on an individual basis.

 

For the time being, the National Office in Harrington remains open. Please note that Sylvie Laplante has replaced Marion Plouvin as our Customer Service Representative, so if you have specific concerns she can be contacted Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm by email at communications@cammac.ca or by phone at 819-687-3938, extension 25. Please be patient, as the call volume is very high at the moment.
