Upcoming March Events at the Harris Center Cancelled Due to Coronavirus

Upcoming March Events at the Harris Center Cancelled Due to Coronavirus

Based on the latest guidance from the California Department of Public Health and as announced by Governor Newsom on the evening of March 11, all performances at the Harris Center through March 31st have been cancelled effective 3/12/20.

"Here at the Harris Center, where we normally bring the community together for celebratory events, the safety of our patrons, artists and staff is our highest concern," notes Harris Center Executive Director Dave Pier. "In this unprecedented situation, however, direction from state government and our own campus and college district is unified and crystal clear. Safety here is best served by not gathering people together."

And the Harris Center is not alone. "Performing arts programs at UC Berkeley's Cal Performances, UCLA's Center for the Art of Performance, Pepperdine University, Scripps College, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, the Mondavi Center at UC Davis and others have similarly cancelled performances in response to COVID-19," notes Pier.

"Also, as many of our artists are currently on national or international tours, their travel plans are tied to their appearances at venues across the country and the world. Given this, we are in regular communication with their representatives. We expect to have more information soon on a show-by-show basis that may result in further postponements or cancellations."

The Center will be issuing refunds to ticket buyers for the cancelled performances. For more information, patrons should visit the Harris Center website at https://www.harriscenter.net/visit/coronavirus
