Given the surge in Covid-19 cases as a result of the Omicron variant, the board of the Pelham Music Festival Board decided to cancel the event scheduled for Jan. 22.
Board member Rose Horley said the festival is exploring alternative ideas that could include outdoor events when the weather warms up so individuals can gather more safely. Visit the website for updates regarding the festival.
The last festival was held in January 2020, when the traditional variety of musicians performed, including pianists, singers, flutists, violinists and guitar players.
The Pelham Music Festival is an annual celebration where musicians ranging in age from third graders to adults showcase their musical talents for the community. In 2003, Bob and Lauren Eicher, in partnership with sponsors including Steinway & Sons, McClellan Real Estate and Meridien Risk Management, founded the festival with the goal to create an opportunity for children to perform in front of a warm and inviting audience.
