An Update on COVID-19

In these unprecedented days of uncertainty, we are taking a hopeful approach to planning our upcoming concerts. We will only cancel performances when it becomes clear that the current status of the COVID-19 crisis would not make performances possible. Unfortunately, we are cancelling our April concerts.

While the hall is now silent, the music will return! We miss all of our audiences and yearn to be back together. While we may not be able to provide you with a live full-orchestra performance right now, several TSO musicians are creating beautiful musical moments in their homes, to sustain and inspire you. As just one example, view a performance of Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring on the TSO’s Facebook page.

The following concerts are cancelled:

  • April 1, 2, 4 & 5, 2020 (Lisiecki Plays Beethoven’s Emperor)
  • April 8, 9 & 11, 2020 (Gimeno, Yuja Wang & Brahms)
  • April 14 & 15, 2020 (Classic Broadway: Rodgers & Hammerstein)
  • April 20–24, 2020 (School Concerts)
  • April 26, 2020 (Symphonic Fairy Tales)
  • April 29, May 1 & 2, 2020 (Oundjian Conducts Mahler)
  • May 3, 2020 (TSYO 46th Season Finale)

Ticketholders are being contacted with options, which include exchanging into another 2019/20 season performance; donating tickets for a charitable tax receipt; or receiving a gift certificate for the full value of the tickets, including service charges.

The April 18, 2020 performances of Joe Hisaishi in Concert at Meridian Hall will be rescheduled to June 2021. Ticketholders will be contacted directly by TO Live and Ticketmaster with further directions.

We will update you about other upcoming concerts as the situation evolves. We would like to thank our community—subscribers, donors, patrons, musicians, artistic collaborators, and staff—for your support and commitment. We look forward to seeing you soon.
