Concert Cancelled for 29th March

Posted on 13 March 2020

As you are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has been progressing over the last few weeks.  Today, the Chief Medical Officer of Australia, Professor Brendan Murphy, has issued a recommendation for all non-essential gatherings of large groups of people be postponed during the outbreak.

Whilst we believe music plays an important role in helping us get through tough times, as medical professionals, we believe it is vitally important to heed the advice of our health sector leaders in strategies that could attenuate the impact of COVID-19.

As a result, we feel we must cancel our upcoming concert "Stage and Screen Spectacular" on March 29th. All rehearsals are cancelled, including this coming weekend 15th March.  Considering a large amount of our friends and family who are health care workers, we want to make sure they are healthy to deal with the increased workload from screening fever clinics, COVID-19 related presentations and general societal health care needs.
We are hopeful that we may be able to reschedule this concert to later in the year and will keep you all up to date with regards to these plans as we are able to make them.

For those people who have purchased tickets, you will receive a specific email from our Manager via the trybooking site with regards to refunds next week. He is currently in negotiation with Trybooking to facilitate these refunds.

For our QMO Friends and Sponsors who have purchased extra tickets, you will receive an email from our Events Manager with regards to your preference for a 'raincheck' or a refund.

We are all as disappointed as you are with the need to cancel this concert, but we are committed to the health of our communities and will always act in the best interest of our members, audience, and the public.

Please take care of yourselves, your families, friends and colleagues. Stay safe and we hope to see everyone very soon.
