2021 Concert Series programs Canceled
Inspite of a valiant attempt to retain our 2021 concert series programs it has been decided in consultation with management and the Board to cancel the series for this coming season.
Season ticket holders were recently given the option of selecting from among several options for exchanging their 2021 reserved seat ticket(s) ranging from receiving 2022 reserved seat tickets at no additional charge or tickets to reduced audience size shows at 3 pm or 7 pm, or a virtual option or receiving a full refund of the ticket price. The greatest number of respondents requested 2022 tickets suggesting that residents were likely uncomfortable with attending a Busch Hall large audience (100 persons maximum) event. Without greater support for the performance options it was concluded that admission income would be insufficient by to justify the expense of entertainer and other miscellaneous fees. We will try to re-schedule some of these shows for the 2023 season. 2022 reserved seat season tickets will be provided to all who held 2021 tickets or they may be returned upon receipt for a refund of the ticket price.
The pandemic has presented many challenges for the season ahead but we hope to return to a more normal season in 2022. The artists and programs scheduled for 2022 are identified below and are described in greater detail on the TR website in the “Wednesday programs” section under “entertainment.
January 5 - Jimmy Travis - Nashville songwriter and comic
January 19 - Gotta Dance - a song and dance movie musical revue
February 2 - Remembering The Carpenters - Annual Spectacular
February 16 - Another Walk Down Broadway - cast of 12 March 2 - Scott Woods - Canadian fiddle champ and band
March 16 - Cahal Dunne - our favorite Irish entertainer
SUNDAY IN THE GROVE
A global pandemic might slow us down but it can’t stop the fun at Travelers Rest! You’ve all been waiting to hear about plans for entertainment this season - let me invite you to experience a new treat, “Sunday in the Grove”.
With the help of the TR Executive Board, Ray Hill, and Doug Pedersen, we have re-imagined our Sunday evening entertainment, and turned it into wonderful afternoons under the trees, at a new outdoor music venue next to the Snack Shack Pavilion. Ice cream will be available to purchase at 3:30 p.m., performances will begin at 4 p.m., and you are all invited to bring your lawn chairs and picnic baskets and enjoy the exciting acts we have lined up.
As important as fun is, the safety of our residents, guests and staff is our #1 focus and concern. We love being able to provide a large outdoor music stage for everyone to enjoy live music, especially given the limited number of options that are available. However, we need to be able to do so in a safe and responsible manner, with everyone cooperating to social distance while watching these live shows. Our only other option is to cancel live music completely for the remainder of the year and we are going to do our best to avoid that!
Keeping in mind that this situation is subject to change, we will request that masks be worn when not seated. We will ask you not to sit or stand in groups, congregate in the parking area with lawn chairs, etc. If you are not able to adhere to these guidelines for our live shows, given the current restrictions we face, we respectfully suggest you wait to attend entertainment until things have returned to normal.
We hope that all of our residents appreciate our efforts and will give their full cooperation and respect to our staff - and come prepared to enjoy the music of the Cypress Creek Jazz Band at our first performance of the season, November 1, 2020!
