Information Regarding the Provincial State of Emergency and Stay-At-Home Order
On December 21, 2020, a 28-day lockdown was announced for Waterloo Region and KWS concerts scheduled between January 29 and March 26 were postponed. With the announcement of a provincial state of emergency and stay-at-home order until February 11, 2021, these concerts will remain postponed. We will announce new broadcast dates for these concerts as soon as information is available about when it is safe for musicians, crew, and staff to return to recording at Centre In The Square.
