Phoenix Symphony cancels 2020-21 scheduled season

Posted

After careful review and discussions, the Phoenix Symphony announced all previously scheduled concerts in the 2020-21 season have been cancelled because of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

“Forgoing these performances is disappointing to our musicians, staff, board of directors and loyal patrons and friends. However, this cancellation represents the safest and most prudent plan to ensure the well-being of the entire Symphony community,” said Suzanne Wilson, president and CEO of the Phoenix Symphony, in a release. “As stewards of this historic and beloved institution, our mission and responsibility centers on preserving our future and reuniting in Symphony Hall to celebrate our 75th anniversary in the fall of 2021.”

The Phoenix Symphony is committed, alongside its musicians, to creatively explore ways to remain connected to the community.

“For 74 years, The Phoenix Symphony has been a cultural jewel of the Valley. Unfortunately, though, COVID-19 has had a tremendous financial impact on our organization,” Ms. Wilson said in the release. “At this time, we are asking patrons impacted by the cancellation to consider donating the value of unused tickets back to the symphony. In doing so, once again, our community’s generous spirit and vital contributions will make a difference.”

The team at the Phoenix Symphony will reach out to all patrons impacted by this cancellation. For questions regarding all ticket options, please contact Patrons Services by calling 602-495-1999  9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday  or by emailing info@phoenixsymphony.org.
