CRESCENDO’S 2019-20 Season
View detailed descriptions HERE.
Crescendo is postponing its upcoming March and April concerts. We feel that it is critically important to adhere to public safety provisions determined by the Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York Governors to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19).
We are exploring possibilities to reschedule the performances, and will be in touch with you about details very soon, as we are working on possible dates, venues, casting, etc.
