Fires in Central Portugal

Dear Choirs,

Just wanted to give everyone a quick update on a situation happening in Portugal now.
 
There is a very bad forest fire going on now in Central Portugal at Pedrógão Grande, about 200km away from Lisbon. Many lives have been lost and three days of national mourning have been declared in Portugal. Our deepest sympathies, hearts and prayers go out to those affected by the freak disaster.
 
However, please rest assured that the fires are distant away enough that the festival isn’t affected by it. Hence, the festival is scheduled to go on as planned. We will keep everyone posted if there is any change to this but for now, the show will go on. Safe travels to Lisbon and we will see you in Belém. 
 
We will continue to sing. Sing for the people of Portugal. 
 
Best regards,
Festival Coros de Verão 2017
