2020

We’re sad to share that due to the COVID crisis and the cancellation of Festivals and Fairs by organizers throughout the region, CHO performances are currently on hold. In the meantime, we’re working together online and in small groups (as allowed) so we’re ready to play for you when things open up again. We miss you!
