It is with extreme disappointment and frustration that we must again announce the postponement of the Duprees concert, scheduled for March 10, 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 
The Sarasota School District has placed a 25% occupancy restriction on all events at the North Port Performing Arts Center, which means that our concert would be restricted to 250 attendees.  Since we have more than 500 outstanding tickets, it is not feasible to proceed as planned on March 10, 2021. 

We are working with all parties involved to identify a new date that will allow full capacity, be conducive to our “snowbird” population, and above all provide a safe environment for our attendees.  We are hoping to solidify a date in late October or early November of 2021, but we are unable to confirm a date until the new 2021 school events calendar is published at the end of January.  You will be notified via e-mail as soon as the new concert date is identified.

On behalf of the Heron Creek Community Foundation, which has donated more than $418,000 to local charities, we thank you for your patience in this unfortunate pandemic situation.
