A Note About Coronavirus

LAST UPDATED MARCH 16, 2020


THE FREIGHT WILL BE CLOSED THROUGH 4/17, SEE UPDATED PAGE REGARDING CLOSURES HERE. THIS PAGE IS NOW OUT OF DATE

 

 

Dear Friends:

The Freight & Salvage has made the decision to temporarily close our venue through Friday, April 17, 2020, acting on Governor Newsom’s executive order and the California Department of Public Health’s guidance on gatherings.

At this time, we plan to reopen on Saturday, April 18, 2020, but as this is an evolving situation we will be continually monitoring it and following all government advisories.

FOR SHOWS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED THROUGH FRIDAY APRIL 17


We are working hard to reschedule every show to a new date. Some have already been rescheduled, some will remain postponed until we can secure a new date, and unfortunately a few will simply need to be canceled. If you are a ticketholder for one of these shows, we are emailing you with the status of your show.  We hope that ticketholders will come to the rescheduled shows, but when this is not possible, we encourage you to consider an option that helps our non-profit organization continue to thrive and pay artists, such as:
1. Converting your ticket to a tax-deductible donation to The Freight
2. Exchanging your tickets for tickets to a future show
3. Receiving a refund as a Freight & Salvage gift card which we will mail to you
If none of these work for you, refunds will be issued to your method of purchase.

FOR CLASSES / WORKSHOPS / JAMS
In-person Freight Singers rehearsals are canceled until further notice. The Chorus Directors are exploring online options. All upcoming Jams and Freighter Tots events are canceled. As of right now, the Freight will not be holding any classes onsite this session (March-April) but some classes will have online capability.
Contact Director of Education & Community Engagement PC Muñoz with any questions about classes during this time: pcmunoz@freightandsalvage.org

As you can imagine, this closure presents tremendous financial challenges for the Freight. Please consider donating now so that the Freight can return to normal operations once this crisis has passed.
