TUCSON, Ariz. — A planned trip to New York City has been canceled for the Rincon/University High School choir program.

The choir, which was scheduled to perform on Carnegie Hall stage on March 15, was given the news on Thursday.

According to the school administration, the reason for cancellation is due to COVID-19 concerns.

Dear Rincon community,

Sanctions and closures in New York City due to COVID19 have resulted in the RUHS Choir trip to New York being cancelled. The galleries, museums and other attractions have been closed for the time being due to this outbreak. We are working with the impacted families to see if refunds/rescheduling may be possible, but thought it was important for you to know as a member of our community that this group will not be traveling to New York after all. Students in the choir will receive notification about their specific program and details surrounding future trips and/or refunds through their director.

We will continue to work with the district, Pima County Health and the CDC to follow directives and keep our kids and families safe.

Thank you for your continued support.
Rincon Administration
