We are very sorry to announce that we will not be going ahead with the Beat Beethoven event this June (2023). A combination of several things have conspired over the last few months at the Kingston Symphony Association that make holding Beat Beethoven unfeasible.
We had hoped to come back this year with a live event, but with the stress on our resources - financial, staff, and volunteers - we know we can't provide what is needed to mount a successful event. The last few years have been very difficult for our organization and our staff's focus has had to be on our core activity - getting our orchestra back on stage and our audience back in the concert hall in addition to supporting the new digital programming we now have in place. We are very hopeful that in the coming years we can find a way to present Beat Beethoven in a manner that is supported and is sustainable for both staff and volunteers. The ultimate goal is to create an event that is a high quality race, but can equally increase awareness of our orchestra in the region. We appreciate your understanding.
Sincerely, Kingston Symphony AssociationVisit Facebook Page
