Joy in Singing has canceled the 2020/21 International Art Song Competition
in anticipation of continued health precautions
driven by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In support of the Art Song and musical community in these uncertain times,
when musicians must protect their health but face dire economic straits,
Joy in Singing has donated $1,000 to the AGMA Relief Fund,
an organization devoted to assisting musicians during the pandemic.
We wish you all good health. The link below lists additional resources
offering aid to musicians during the crisis:
