A message for Musco members & patrons: A healthy community, today and tomorrow

As individuals and families across the nation and around the world join together to combat the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), governments, businesses, and institutions are also concerned for the future health of our civic and cultural infrastructure.

In accordance with a directive from Chapman University in response to guidance from the President’s Coronavirus Task Force, the CDC, the Governor of California, and the California Department of Public Health, Musco Center for the Arts promptly cancelled its scheduled performances through early May, effectively ending our 2019-20 Season eight weeks early.

The fact is, without audiences, the arts are crippled – not only for the short-term availability of live performance, but in the long-term support of the artists who create the music, dance, and drama of the future.

While the loss of performance income has an immediate impact, we can’t let that harm what we will depend on once the crisis ends.

The Musco Center family, of which you are a part, understands this. And those of you who are in a position to support our immediate and future needs can have a tremendous impact by contributing to Musco Center’s Creative Fundnow.

When the quarantines end, the shelves are restocked, and our community is bustling again, we want to ensure the rich cultural fabric of which Musco Center is a part, grows stronger than ever.

In the meantime, please be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, where we will be sharing memories, content, updates and recommendations for at-home viewing.

Thank you for being part of our family. We are grateful to all of you who have reached out to share your support and tell us how you are.

I look forward to welcoming you back to Musco Center as soon as possible.
