The wonderful Students and Instructors of NESR IV!

A Letter From Ellis: NESR V

Friday April 24, 2020


Hello all:


Laurie and I are sending you love at this very strange and challenging time. We hope you’re hanging in there. It’s been wonderful to see some of you online.


With a heavy heart, I’ve made the difficult decision to postpone NESR V to 2021, due to COVID-19. Large gatherings in early September this year may be dangerous (especially given that many of our Students and Instructors are in their 50s, 60s and even older). Basically, we await a vaccine.


NESR V will take place next year, Labor Day weekend (Fri Sep 3 - Tue Sep 7, 2021). We will revel in music and each other’s company!


I am considering whether it makes sense to have some sort of online gathering of the NESR community this year, so we’ll reach out if/when that develops.


Also, the NESR Instructors are offering a variety of concerts and services at this time—we’ll share those with you in a week or so.


If you already paid for NESR V, Laurie will be refunding you in full within the next week.


We’re wishing you good health and sending love,
