UPDATED, 4:30 PM: The Society of Composers & Lyricists has postponed its third annual SCL Awards amid the surge in Covid cases tied to the Omicron variant. No new date was set for the ceremony that had been set for February 1 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles.
Here is the statement from the group’s president, Ashley Irwin:
Upon careful consideration of our members’ safety, analysis with city and state officials, and our partners, we have made the decision to postpone the 3rd Annual SCL Awards ceremony to a later date. We are determined to keep this an in-person event, and, therefore, the safety and health concerns of those in our music community, our staff, and the production team are of the utmost importance.
Given the uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant, we believe that going ahead with the show on February 1st would not be the best course of action. We look forward to celebrating our members’ outstanding work with you all on a future date, to be announced.
