A Message from The Living Tradition Board Regarding
Reopening our Concerts, Jams, and Contra Dances in 2022
We have certainly missed seeing all of you at
our events and hope that we can host our concerts, jams,
and contra dances in April and June 2022, assuming that
the rate of COVID breakthrough cases remains low and
that there is no holiday surge in new breakthrough
cases. We will skip the month of May to evaluate
whether a sustained resumption of our events can begin
in June 2022.
We will monitor the rate of breakthrough COVID
cases from both the Los Angeles County and Orange County
Departments of Health before making a final decision on
when to resume our activities. We hope this will be
sooner rather than later, but we want to do our best to
provide a safe environment for our performers,
volunteers, and audience. Thank you for your
understanding and patience.

Event Volunteers Needed
To borrow a phrase, it takes a village to put on
our events. We must be certain that we have enough
vaccinated volunteers to staff our events before we are
able to reopen.
If you are fully vaccinated and interested in
volunteering to help with either concerts or dances,
please contact Ron Bloom at
concerts, and Patty McCollom at
dances. Additionally, we need an EXPERIENCED sound
technician and volunteers willing to help with event
We are looking forward to seeing you in 2022!
All the best,
The Living Tradition Board
