Dear SIA 2020 Subscriber,
I hope you are staying safe and healthy. The COVID19 situation is getting only worse so it would not be possible for SIA to present any in-person concerts in 2020.
I hope you are enjoying the “Bollywood Meets Ragas” emails. Additionally, SIA will be presenting two specially commissioned full-length online concerts on its YouTube channel in September and October.
I sent you an email a few months back offering to refund in full your 2020 Subscription money. You were so kind not to ask for a refund, a gesture we greatly appreciate.
Happily, the SIA Board has decided that your entire 2020 subscription money be applied towards SIA 2021 Season subscription. Accordingly, you are already subscribed to SIA’s 2021 season which will be announced towards the end of the year.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Exec Dir, SIA
