The Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival today announced that the Zukerman Trio has canceled its April 26 performance at the Festival’s 2020 season finale. Refunds will be issued to ticketholders as soon as possible. The Zukerman Trio has been rescheduled for March 21, 2021 as part of the Festival’s twentieth anniversary season.

As previously reported, the Dover Quartet concert scheduled for April 17 and the free Dover Master Class for April 18 also have been canceled.

Christopher Rex, the Festival’s general and artistic director, said, “We deeply regret having canceled the second half of our 2020 season, but the health and safety of our patrons has been our number one priority amid the coronavirus pandemic. We are attempting to reschedule for our 2021 season several other artists unable to perform this year. We will be announcing the schedule for our 20th anniversary celebration in 2021 within the next few months. In the meantime, we hope all of our friends and supporters stay safe and healthy.”

The drawing for the 2020 C-Note Raffle prizes will be held as soon as current coronavirus restrictions are eased. The drawing will be conducted by the Festival’s president, general and artistic director and executive director, all of whom are not eligible to participate in the raffle.
