We regretfully inform you that the 15th Annual Learnquest Music Conference will not take place on March 27-29, 2020. The growing and unpredictable spread of COVID-19 has made it impossible to assess safety risks. We have been monitoring the situation and contemplating measures to keep the artists and music enthusiasts safe. On March 10, however, the State of Massachusetts has declared a public health emergency that gives us no choice but to cancel the event.

We recognize the hard work and travel that so many have put in preparing for the event. We feel sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you, and will start refunding the concert tickets. Once the situation has abated, we will take stock of options and communicate further. We look forward to seeing you soon and thank you for your continuing support. With prayers for your health and safety,

- The LearnQuest team
