I will not try to hide the fact that I am heartbroken about this. Everything had come together so perfectly for this, our 5th anniversary festival. Artistic plans had been in the works for many months. Those plans must now be put on hold until conditions make it possible for the festival to resume—and resume we shall.
Ticket holders have been notified of two options for their ticket purchase: receive a full refund, or donate their ticket purchase to the Toronto Bach Festival.
If you are in a position to do so, we would be very grateful if you would consider making a donation to help us get through this difficult time. In preparation for the festival we have incurred significant irretrievable costs for staff, marketing, publicity, website development, printing, etc. As you may know, the Toronto Bach Festival is funded entirely by our patrons and donors. If you choose to make a donation, you will, of course, receive a charitable tax receipt for the full amount of your donation. The link below will take you to the Chamber Factory's page on Canada Helps. Make sure you choose the Toronto Bach Festival from the drop-down menu before you make your donation.
We are grateful for your support of the Toronto Bach Festival, and we sincerely hope you remain well and safe in these difficult times.
