After much deliberation and advisement, the OAA and Amuse, Inc (BEGIN’s management company), have decided to postpone the BEGIN Concert set for March 28th. We are working on both sides to find a new date and will keep you updated.

Statement from Edward Kamiya, OAA President:

"In following Governor Gavin Newsom’s call for postponement or cancellations of large groups with more than 250 people due to the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) pandemic, the OAA has decided to honor this recommendation and Amuse, Inc. (BEGIN’s management company) agrees with this decision. We are postponing the March 28th BEGIN concert. The health and safety of our ticket holders are our top priority. This was an extremely difficult decision but we want to act accordingly to stop the spread of the coronavirus. We apologize for the inconvenience to ticket holders who have made travel arrangements. We are working to find a new date for the concert and hope to have one shortly."

Ticket holders have the choice of keeping their seats for the upcoming concert or obtaining refunds.
