Message regarding the 2020 Lute Fest...

Here are the steps we are taking right now in consideration of how COVID-19 might affect the 2020 Lute Fest:

1. We are in touch with Case Western Reserve University and we are monitoring the guidelines from both the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO)CWRU has closed its campus until April 20 and the State of Ohio has declared a state of emergency without a cutoff date, 

2. We are continually checking in with other organizations holding seminars in June. As of this writing neither the Guitar Foundation of America nor the Berkeley Early Music Festival have cancelled their events, both to be held during the month of June.

3. The Board will meet in April and the planning for Lute Fest 2020 will be our top priority

The health and safety of our faculty and participants is of the upmost importance and we will keep you informed. Please check back here for updated information

Hoping to see you in June!
