Article Pixel

For the health and well-being of patrons, musicians, and the Symphony family, the San Diego Symphony has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of its 2019-20 San Diego Symphony season concerts. This includes all concerts through May 30.

"Now more than ever, we need the support of our patrons. I respectfully ask that ticketholders consider donating the value of their ticket back to the San Diego Symphony. Their tax-deductible donation today means that the next time they are able to join us at Copley Symphony Hall for a concert, the orchestra will be here to share the joy of live music with them once more, as a healthy, vibrant and financially secure organization," said Martha Gilmer, San Diego Symphony CEO. "Though our current season was unexpectedly cut short, we can find comfort in the anticipation of the 2020-2021 season which we announced on April 5."
