      CANCELLED: Skagit Symphony's 2020 Garden Tour

      Skagit Symphony Garden Tour Cancellation Announcement This spring has been a new experience for many of us. We have experienced fear, frustration, sadness and hope in equal measures. Skagit Symphony had hoped that the pandemic level would decline to the point at which we would be able to create a safe way to hold Skagit Symphonys 2020 Garden Tour. Our local community is beginning to recover from this trying time, though we agree that its still necessary for the health and safety of the public to move towards public gatherings at a measured pace. Consequently, out of an abundance of caution, on May 5th, 2020 Skagit Symphony leadership decided to cancel the 2020 Garden Tour. Today our thoughts were echoed by Skagit County Public Health, when they posted the following statement on their website: SUMMER EVENTS On May 6, 2020, Skagit County Public Health Officer Dr. Howard Leibrand recommended the cancellation or postponement of large scale summer events through the summer, including fairs, parades, festivals, overnight residential camps, fireworks displays or any other large group gatherings. This recommendation aligns with Governor Inslees Safe Start plan. This is a guidance to help provide clarity to Skagitonians and guide decision making, Dr. Leibrand said. I wish I could guarantee that large events and gatherings will be safer later in the summer, but we cant be certain. We will have to reassess the data as we get closer. For more information on the Safe Start plan, please visit www.governor.wa.gov We are sad that we will miss sharing these fabulous gardens with you this summer, though as Clare Ansberry wrote in The Women of Troy Hill: The Back-Fence Virtues of Faith and Friendship, Gardens and flowers have a way of bringing people together, drawing them from their homes. We hold out hope that we will all be able to bring people together for Skagit Symphonys Garden Tour in 2021, when we can all stop to smell the roses freely again. The Garden Tour is about more than just flowers. It is our only community fundraiser, so if you are able, please go to www.skagitsymphony.com/donate and make a donation to support our efforts to continue to bring the gift of music to Skagit Valley. The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between. ~Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
