It is with great
disappointment that APEX Ensemble must announce the cancellation of its
sudden and unexpected loss of our performance venue, coupled with a
significant revenue decline resulting from two years of cancelled performances
during the pandemic, forced us to make this difficult decision. We
remain extremely grateful to all our remarkable donors and subscribers
for the generous support we have received from them during these past
We had hoped
that once we were back performing, we would be able to overcome the
losses that the previous two years had created. Unfortunately, without
the stability of a performance venue, that did not seem a likely
scenario. The Board then had to make the very difficult, but fiscally
responsible, decision to suspend all concerts this season.
We are very
proud of the extraordinary quality of the concerts we have given since
our inception in 2016. Our orchestra was founded with the mission of
giving top conservatory students the opportunity to perform side by
side with top professional musicians, an opportunity that was unique to
APEX and was eagerly welcomed by students and professionals alike.
The entire APEX
family is devastated by this turn of events and the Board hopes to find
some path forward that would enable the incredibly meaningful mission
of APEX Ensemble to continue.
