Colorado Symphony updates on the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
Updated November 12, 2020
CANCELLED OR RESCHEDULED THROUGH MAY 30, 2021
The Colorado Symphony Association (CSA) regretfully announces the cancellation of the majority of remaining 2020/21 Season concert titles in Boettcher Concert Hall due to the uncertainty of operations brought on by the COVID-19 health pandemic and current city and state restrictions. All ticketholders will be notified directly of the cancellations or reschedule dates of select events via email and offered a variety of options concerning their tickets.
With these cancellations, the date to purchase single tickets for the 2020/21 Season has also been cancelled. The 2021/22 Season is projected for announce in late spring 2021.
Considering the inability to gather indoors for events to prevent the spread of COVID-19 the CSA has launched an on demand viewing gateway, Colorado Symphony Virtual Stage, for patrons to view post-produced video performance content on coloradosymphony.org. Debut feature content includes archived performances as well as content filmed in Boettcher Concert Hall, without audiences, under strict safety guidelines in autumn 2020.
The CSA remains committed to capturing content without audiences for digital release and when weather permits it will continue bringing limited-capacity, in-person, outdoor socially distanced concerts to our community. The CSA is grateful to have partnered in the summer of 2020 with the Denver Botanic Gardens, Denver Zoo, and Denver Arts and Venues to successfully program and execute nearly forty live, in-person concert events to-date. Along with our trustees and philanthropic partners, we will continue to navigate the challenges ahead with an unshakable commitment to create as many extraordinary live and virtual musical experiences for Coloradoans as restrictions for public health and safety allow.
