Dear CPAF Family, 


On behalf of the Board of Directors of CPAF and myself, it is with regret that I inform you of our very difficult and unprecedented decision to cancel the Calgary Performing Arts Festival for 2020.  This decision is a direct result of the Premier calling for the immediate cancellation of any organized gathering of more than 50 people as a state of emergency is declared for Alberta. This is also due to the closure of Mount Royal University, our venue for the Festival. I


We know this is certainly a difficult time for us all and heartbreaking for so many of the students who have practiced so hard to perform this year. While we may not be able to hear you perform for us this year in person, we hope you will be able to share your performances with your family and the rest of us if you would like to post something online. (We will provide ways to do this soon, on our social media and websites!)


We are still assessing the repercussions from this and ask for your patience at this time as the Board of Directors and staff look at what this cancellation will mean for this year’s registrants and the organization moving forward. We will advise in the coming weeks.  We ask for your patience and understanding during this time as we thoughtfully work through the next steps. Please bear with us if we are unable to answer all questions at this time.. 


Please stay safe and thank you again.


Ms Young-Mi Kwon
