Season Finale “Dance Party: Then and Now” – Canceled
We learned from Portland’5 that our June 23rd concert, Dance Party, is officially canceled due to Governor Brown’s ongoing ban on concert gatherings. We are saddened by this cancellation, but we also believe that the health and safety of the entire community are of paramount importance. The MYS office will be in contact with everyone who has already purchased tickets to reimburse you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
