A Message from Your EMCATOS Officers and Board of Directors

    To say the least, the last ten months have been a challenge to us all.  "Normal", whatever that is, seems to be a faint memory.  A wise person once said that "Normal is a setting on the dryer."  He or she was probably right.
    As you all know we were forced by COVID to curtail last spring's concerts and all of this current concert season.  The safety of our audiences is the major concern of the Board of Directors.  With the development and availability of at least two vaccines, we hope to resume concerts in the fall of 2021.
    In the meantime, we are exploring the possibility of presenting some of our previous concerts via our YouTube channel.  If this effort comes to fruition, members and friends will be able to enjoy some of the outstanding performances that EMCATOS has presented in the past.  We will keep you updated as to the progress of this endeavor.
    Until we meet again in person the EMCATOS Officers and Board of Directors wish you and yours the happiest of Holiday Seasons and a prosperous and COVID-free New Year.

Bob Evans, President, December 18, 2020
