We just aren’t the kind of people that don’t follow through with our plans. We set our sights high and we push ourselves to reach new limits. The 2020-21 season that was announced in February of 2020 had taken almost a year to craft and finalize, we had so many wonderful performances in store to captivate our audiences. As we all know, the world changed quickly in the Spring and our best laid plans have been crumbling apart over the last few months.
It is with a hopeful heart, that we have made the decision to pursue a new course for our 52nd season so that we can continue making music for our beloved community. After cancelling our summer concert schedule, we began to look ahead at the Classix season and our performances in August and September. With the uncertainity of when the government will allow our orchestra to assemble and our audiences to gather, we made the decision to rebuild our season so that we program only what we know we can deliver, safely, to our audiences. We truly value the commitment you make when you purchase a ticket to one of our events, and especially during this challenging time, we promise to be your trusted partner as we navigate the 2020–2021 season together.
The wonderful season that Music Director Laura Jackson and our artistic committee spent so many months creating for you will not be lost. We will move those programs, along with any tickets sold, into the 2021-22 season as in tact as possible. Building a season is a complicated puzzle, based on numerous factors. We’ve started inviting our soloists to join us in 2021-22 and making adjustments to bring this music to you in the following year. Our cherished subscribers are encouraged to keep the value of their subscriptions on-account in order to perserve seating preference for 2021-22. For those subscribers in 2019-20 who have yet to renew your seats, we will hold those seats open until the spring of 2021.
The new season 52 will be built on the intention of following through- no matter what phase we find ourselves in. Each program will be announced 6 weeks before the concert, to allow us the time to be flexible and scale the programs up or down as permitted. We will ticket each concert on an individual basis, with pre-sales for our subscribers. All subscribers from the 2019-20 season will be given FREE access to our virtual concert hall.
