"Unfortunately, even though Governor Gavin Newsom has announced that the tier system will be eliminated June 15, the "Blueprint" has not, and still does not, address outdoor gatherings such as ours," states event chairperson, Kerri de Rosier. "It only addresses events at venues in controlled environments with capacity limits — such as arenas and stadiums — where event attendance can be limited to a certain percentage capacity."
Joel Ellazar, the marketing director for the Point Loma Summer Concerts, mentioned that, "we have been incredibly proud to host the Summer Concert Series in our tight-knit community, and are disappointed that ongoing circumstances prevent us from providing the music and fun that we have been accustomed to…but we are looking forward to returning to the field next summer. These events are a valued community tradition, and we thank our residents and local businesses for their patience and understanding during this time."
The Board of Directors has appointed an internal committee that is actively working through various alternatives that may replace the in-person concerts with virtual concerts or daytime concerts to be held later in the year. The organization aims to support their ultimate mission of supporting music education in the community.
The Point Loma Summer Concert will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 updates and information based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and the San Diego County Department of Public Health.
