MOSTLY MODERN FESTIVAL MOVING TO NEXT JUNE 2022—APPLICATIONS CLOSED & WILL RE-OPEN THIS OCTOBER, 2021
Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York has decided to cancel hosting all outside groups for summer 2021.
Here is a quote from an email we received from Wendy LeBlanc, Skidmore College's Director of Conferences and Events:
"At this time, the college doesn’t feel it is plausible to host outside groups on campus. The experience of the fall, and now spring, semesters makes it difficult to imagine hosting external guests on campus. Until a vaccine is widely available, we don't have the resources to manage the record keeping and logistics of testing, contact tracing, quarantining, etc. of non-students on campus."
We had discussed other possibilities, such as moving the festival to a different location, hosting an online festival, outdoors, and so on. These options are not feasible for an orchestra and vocal program, and we are not interested in hosting a virtual, streaming, or online festival.
We are optimistic that we will be able to hold our festival at Skidmore College in June 2022!
I know this: there will be music and joy this summer, but we just can't make it work in the typical festival way with all our students and faculty.
All our very best wishes & stay tuned!
Victoria & Robert Paterson
