Rick Bartalini released the following statement:
Live music and concerts have shaped my life both personally and professionally.
I believe in the power of music to heal and to bring communities together. Unfortunately, due to emerging and rapidly-changing developments in regards to the COVID-19 virus, our gathering together to celebrate music and make memories needs to be suspended for a period of time.
Municipalities around the world are banning large gatherings as a way to curb the spread of COVID-19. Concerts and sporting events are being cancelled or postponed on a global scale as health authorities struggle to manage the novel coronavirus.
The health and safety of the people of Hawaii are of my utmost concern. I have come to love my adopted state and I have great fondness for the people here. I am proud to call Hawaii my home. The Hawaii State Department of Public Health has not yet banned large gatherings or implemented other public restrictions due to the COVID-19 virus. However, it’s important to me that I proactively contribute to the solution.
To help slow down the progression of the coronavirus in our community, the Diana Ross concerts scheduled for May, 2020 have been cancelled.
This is an uncertain time. There is much beyond our control, but we can always choose how to respond to events. When faced with such a choice, please keep thinking of our community as a whole. Always respond to each other with love and compassion. Now is the time for us to look out for each other.
Keep yourself safe. Monitor the Hawaii State Department of Health website for updates on the COVID-19 virus or sign up for email updates at their website: https://health.hawaii.gov/
