To The Editor,
We are pleased to announce that the Uxbridge Music Hall is, once again, fully operational and has begun its fall schedule of events. The Music Hall Advisory Board wishes to take this opportunity to acknowledge and express its appreciation for the manner in which the Township, Council members and all staff along with the Hall’s user groups and audiences, have dealt with the necessity to close the balcony area last spring and to repair some structural problems over the summer.
From first learning of the Board’s concerns, Township Staff and Council responded quickly. They assessed the problem, developed a plan and took the necessary steps to expedite a timely solution, one which would involve the minimum possible inconvenience to the Hall’s users.
The closure of the balcony created many challenging problems, involving everything from juggling schedules to compensating users for reduced seating capacity and even assisting scheduled users to move to other venues. The individuals involved responded to these challenges and developed viable solutions in exemplary fashion.
The accommodation and cooperation of the Music Hall user groups, especially those suffering the greatest inconvenience, were outstanding. Their understanding and support was invaluable and most appreciated.
Finally, we thank our loyal audiences for their patience and understanding in dealing with any inconvenience they may have encountered during this period.
In December, 1901, the official Grand Opening of the Music Hall and the efforts of that community to build this facility were celebrated. It is that same community spirit that drove this project so efficiently and successfully. We can all be proud of these achievements.
