COVID-19 hit the Youth Singers (YSC) community hard with rehearsals, shows & tours cancelled, and critical revenue from gaming and fund raising lost.
Our artistic team quickly pivoted to on-line programming for members and is engaging the greater community with public on-line programming that gets people singing, moving and feeling less isolated. An example of this is HUB at Home, Wednesday evenings on Facebook Live.
We look forward to returning home to the Performing Arts Youth Centre (PAYC) once the restrictions are lifted, but before we can welcome the community back, modifications to PAYC are urgently needed to ensure everyone’s safety. This funding request is for facility modifications that will ensure physical distancing, enhanced cleaning protocols and other safety measures. PAYC is home to YSC and many other community arts groups. Each day, hundreds of people come here to be active in the performing arts.
