The Soraya Has Suspended Upcoming Events

A Message has been released from Thor Steingraber, Executive Director - The Soraya.

See below:

Over the past weeks and months, CSUN leadership has been carefully following the news regarding the spread of COVID-19. Out of an abundance of caution, and with the concurrence of the Office of the Chancellor, CSUN will suspend many of the in-person activities on its campus. CSUN President Dr. Dianne F. Harrison shared the following with the campus community: "Please know that we have made this decision after careful consideration and discussion. We are driven by the overarching priority of ensuring the health and safety of every member of our community by increasing social distancing and limiting the number of large gatherings on campus. These actions are in accordance with the recommendations of public health officials, which we continue to follow."

Accordingly, all public activity at The Soraya will be suspended March 12th through April 17th. This includes all presented events, rental events, and arts education activities.

We are attempting to reschedule presentations with a number of our artists especially those that are Los Angeles-based. New dates will be communicated to ticketholders if and when plans with artist management can be finalized. Refunds will be made for any patrons unable to attend. We have tentatively identified April 19 as a new date for Violins of Hope with the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony. Understanding that the situation is quickly evolving, we will confirm that change as soon as possible.
