The Cleveland Orchestra announces cancellation of 2021 Miami Residency at Adrienne Arsht Center for The Performing Arts

The Cleveland Orchestra announced today the cancellation of its scheduled 2021 Miami residency in partnership with the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County due to the continuing coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic. The cancellations include four performances at Knight Concert Hall scheduled for January 2021, prelude concerts, and all related education presentations and activities.

"The ongoing and evolving crises of recent months has affected all of us and challenged everyone to address what is truly an unprecedented level of uncertainty for the future" said André Gremillet, President & CEO of The Cleveland Orchestra. "In light of the current circumstances, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Orchestra's residency in Miami in January 2021. This cancellation is for The Cleveland Orchestra concerts presented in partnership with the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, due to the highly likely inability for the Orchestra to travel to South Florida in January. While we are deeply disappointed The Cleveland Orchestra won't be performing in Miami this coming season, I am glad to share that our subscribers and donors will be able to stay connected with the Orchestra directly from their homes through a series of digitally-streamed live concerts from Severance Hall in Cleveland. As a special thank you for their support, subscribers and donors will receive free access to these streamed concerts. Details about this series of Cleveland Orchestra concerts and how to access them digitally will be shared in September."

The Cleveland Orchestra is planning to return to Miami in January 2022 to resume its longstanding partnership with the Arsht Center and serve our loyal patrons in South Florida. In the meanwhile, we look forward to sharing our music online with our South Florida audience, as during these troubled times, our music is needed more than ever.
