Re: Another One Bites the Dust
I understand why they cancelled, (financial reasons and hotel blocks etc), but this is going to significantly hurt them. It is going to be very difficult to convince admin to let you sit at home for 2 days to do online clinics. Plus, in any given convention schedule I only wanted to see 3 or 4 clinics a day maybe. A good year maybe 5. I enjoyed the rehearsals and concerts more than anything. And now that's gone. As are the opportunities for the kids. Sucks to be a kid in school in 2020.
Best of luck to TMEA/TBA. I think it will take them YEARS to recover from this. As everyone learns what they don't need over this past year and next 6 months, (even though numbers have plummeted), some things will never come back..... Hope band isn't one of them in this virtual world. Apparently we don't need live music, only virtual programs we can watch safely from our cave.....
