Status Update re: COVID-19

September 17, 2020

Dear FAMI Community,

As you are aware Jam Camp was cancelled this year due to the Covid 19 pandemic. In order to maintain a connection with our musical community FAMI will be holding another Virtual Open Stage on Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 7:00 pm MDT.  The setup will be similar to the previous virtual open stage nights!

Join us as an audience member and listen to some FAMI style music or sign-up to be one of the performers. Details can be found on the Open Stage page.

Dear FAMI Community,

The FAMI Board would like to say thanks to all the Performers and Audience Members in our third FAMI Virtual Open Stage.  It was nice to listen to and connect with our FAMI friends at a time when we should have been enjoying this LIVE.  Stay Safe!

Dear FAMI Community,

We hope you are staying safe and well. It has taken much physical and emotional effort to navigate the unusual times we find ourselves in.  Our collective efforts have made a difference, as our city and province have eased some restrictions and moved towards a phased re-opening of our economy.  For many things, limitations still exist and vigilance is essential to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

With this in mind, the FAMI Board has made the necessary decision to cancel the FAMI 2020 Fall Jam Camp.  While we are disappointed we will not be gathering in person, we know following the guidance of our governments and health officials is the right thing to do.  Additional considerations for our decision included conversations with our partners and a review of the conditions required to ensure the health and safety of our camp attendees.

In lieu of attending camp FAMI has hosted Online Open Stage – one in May and one in July.  It was wonderful to see members of our community perform and we enjoyed conversing with many of our FAMI friends in the Zoom chat box.  We received positive feedback on these events, and are pleased to announce we will be holding another FAMI Online Open Stage on August 29th – the Saturday we would have been at camp.  Please watch our FAMI website and Facebook page for additional details, including how you can  sign up to perform.  We hope you’ll be able to join us!

Please take good care.  We hope there’s a way for music to bring you joy and comfort in the weeks to come, and we look forward to the next time we can gather together in person.

Sincerely,
The FAMI Board

Dear FAMI Community,

We hope you are doing well and have been encouraged by the music in your life during these difficult times.

The FAMI Board has been considering how we might support our FAMI Instructors during the COVID-19 pandemic and have learned a number of our FAMI Instructors are teaching using online resources and wanted to share this with you.  A listing is provided, HERE, as service to our community while physical distancing measures related to COVID-19 are in place. Check it out!

Stay Safe & Well
