Originally slated to open this July 2020, the inaugural summer season at The Shell will now take place in 2021
While we are very sad to put off the opening of this gift to San Diego, we have no alternative. We know that delaying the opening is in the very best interest of all of our patrons, musicians, staff, and the health of San Diegans.
"Not being able to fulfill the dreams of so many people and celebrate the inaugural season at The Shell as planned this summer is devastating. As the construction of The Shell continues, its visible progress on our skyline provides us with a symbol of forward momentum and hope. When the San Diego Symphony Orchestra performs the first concerts at The Shell, I know that the music will mean more to all of us than ever before. We cannot wait for that happy occasion."
Martha Gilmer, San Diego Symphony CEO
"Even though it makes me sad that we have to postpone the opening of The Shell, I’m really looking forward to when the time is right and we can be together again. The Shell, with its amazing location in the beautiful city of San Diego and its magical surroundings, is going to be such a fantastic venue and I can’t wait to make music there."
Rafael Payare, Music Director
