I’m sure it will come as no surprise to any of you to learn that PRS has officially cancelled CGEMR, 2022. At this time a year ago, we had high hopes that the pandemic would have lost enough steam by now, so that it would be safe for all of us to gather in person at Menucha, but sadly, things did not go the way we had hoped. It is feeling a bit like “Groundhog Day” at this point.
Menucha has been a wonderful partner to work with throughout the pandemic, and they have agreed to let us forward our 2022 reservation fee to 2023. The PRS Board discussed the idea of doing another online CGEMR and decided to forego it. The silver lining in this pandemic has been the explosion of online playing opportunities—many of which will continue long after the pandemic has subsided, so there is much to choose from.
On behalf of the Board, I wish you all a happy, healthy and safe New Year, and may your lives be filled with the joy of making music!
