Monday, December 7, 2020
The Barnhill Center management has made the difficult decision to postpone our shows scheduled through March 2021.
We hosted two wonderful shows this fall. We and our audiences were so appreciative to hear live music again! We all felt secure with Covid safety measures in place and no spread of illness.
However, it’s now clear that social distancing will still be required in early 2021. We cannot continue operating while we cannot sell enough seats to cover costs.

We are a non-profit operation.
