Due to COVID-19, All Scheduled Philadelphia Orchestra Rehearsals, Performances, and Events are Cancelled through March 23, 2020

Posted on March 12, 2020

(Philadelphia, March 12, 2020)—In anticipation of the City of Philadelphia’s recommendation that all large gatherings be suspended to limit community transmission of COVID-19, all scheduled Philadelphia Orchestra rehearsals, performances, and events through March 23, 2020, are cancelled. The health and safety of all is our top priority.

This impacts the following performances at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts and the Academy of Music:

  • BeethovenNOW: Symphonies 5 & 6 (March 12, 14, and 15)
  • BeethovenNOW: Symphonies 2 & 3 (March 19, 21, and 22)
  • Sound All Around: Ensemble (March 21 and 23)

Ticketholders may exchange tickets to an upcoming performance or support The Philadelphia Orchestra by donating tickets.

To offer increased flexibility, exchange fees will be waived through May 2, 2020, for ticketholders who wish to exchange tickets to upcoming performances.

For those who wish to help with the serious financial impact that concert cancellations will have on The Philadelphia Orchestra, donors can choose to contribute their tickets back as a charitable gift (and receive a tax deduction for the total ticket value).

To exchange or donate tickets, ticketholders may contact Patron Services at 215.893.1999 or Group Sales at 215.893.1968 with any group ticket questions.
