On today’s Meet Cortland County segment:
Updates from Homer Center for the Arts director Ty Marshal.
Earlier this week, the governor announced limited in-person events could return starting April 2nd.
Venues like the Center are still capped at 33% capacity — up to 150 people indoors and 500 outdoors with testing.
“Our huge season lineup off concerts may be on hold for now,” said Marshal, “but stay tuned for some exciting developments in the near future.”
Marshal said this could include another safe summer event like last year’s drive-in concert at Dwyer Park.
For now, the Center continues to host weekly film screenings at Whiting Theatre.
A number of programs are also in the works for young creatives in the area; many haven’t been able to play music or showcase other pieces of art during COVID-19.
They can now get involved by joining the Homer Youth Orchestra or by submitting work for consideration in an upcoming exhibit being planned at the Center.
