2022 MLK Celebration – Cancelled

A message from Dave Tiller, President of the Reston Community Orchestra:

“Regrettably, our concert scheduled for January 15th, 2022 as a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. must be cancelled. The Reston Community Center, which operates under the umbrella of the Fairfax County government, strongly influenced this decision because of COVID-related Omicron spikes in the area. Additional health concerns, including the steady withdrawal of COVID-exposed and -concerned players, the prediction of little-to-no audience, and loss of rehearsal time were driving factors.

“Needless to say, this cancellation is a huge disappointment to Maestro Fleary and all of us as we have been looking forward to premiering March of Freedom, as well as playing some of our traditional favorites. We are making plans to perform with Dr. Gilbert Pryor and his group, NWO, at a future concert, as this work can fit in multiple future programs.”

We look forward to seeing everyone at our March 13th concert – Wait! Don’t Tell Me!
