The San Diego Symphony to cancel all REMAINING classical concerts
through MAY 23, 2021
at Copley Symphony Hall AT Jacobs Music Center
Though we hoped very much that we could come back to live performances this spring and present the final classical concerts of our Season 2020-21 schedule, the reality is that we must wait to once again hear our Orchestra until it is safe for us to gather together.
"As we reach the end of the year, I want to thank you for all of your support of our wide-ranging virtual activities thus far. We have heard enthusiastic reception from many of you for our streamed concerts, conversations with musicians, and the educational work our musicians have been involved with.
It is the knowledge of your commitment to live musical performance, your enjoyment of music even in virtual form, and your heartfelt generosity that has kept me and my colleagues optimistic and forward looking during this time. We will get through this challenge and emerge a stronger organization and orchestra thanks to you."
Martha Gilmer, San Diego Symphony CEO
SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Will the 21/22 programming be the same as the 20/21 programming?
While some of the guest artists who were scheduled to perform in the 20/21 season may join us for our 21/22 season, the programs will be different. We anticipate sharing the 21/22 season programming with you in April 2021, at which time you will have the opportunity to make changes to your subscription.
What is happening for the second half of the 2020-21 season?
Based on local conditions and San Diego County Health Dept. recommendations, we have now decided to cancel the second half of the 2020-21 season.
Can I get an account credit or refund instead of the 21/22 subscription?
Yes, you can request to donate, receive an account credit or refund for your 20/21 subscription instead of having that subscription automatically moved to the 21/22 season. (If we do not hear from you, we will assume you wish your funds to stay on account for 21/22.) Even if you request a refund or to donate your ticket funds, if you later decide to return for the 21/22 season, we will keep your original seats reserved on your account for renewal and just bill you for the balance due at the new Spring 2021 deadline.
We hope you will keep your subscription with us to offset the financial impact of COVID-19 on the San Diego Symphony. By keeping your subscription in 21/22, you will retain your seats for what will be a joy-filled return to Copley Symphony Hall, while keeping the San Diego Symphony strong until we are able to earn ticket revenue once more.
What about tickets to special concerts that I added to my subscription?
You may donate, credit your account or request a refund for any tickets or concerts added to your subscription. (Again, if we do not hear from you, we will simply put your funds on account for use in 21/22.)
Who can I speak to about my tickets?
Our ticketing staff are here to answer any questions you may have and guide you through this process. Please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 619.235.0804 between 10am and 6pm Monday through Friday. Due to heavy phone volume and reduced staff, we encourage you to contact us by email to avoid experiencing longer than normal wait times.
What is the San Diego Symphony Orchestra doing during this time?
While our venues – Copley Symphony Hall at Jacob’s Music Center, and The ShellSM – are closed, we continue to connect with our audiences through a variety of digital programs and the sharing of socially distanced performances by our musicians on social media. In April we launched a dedicated webpage called Symphony Stream to gather all of the virtual content available.
In addition, we have already begun to safely gather ensembles of musicians together to perform, and have successfully presented online performances the last few months that you may access for a limited time for free. Other online performance productions are being planned for Spring 2021.
