Public Health Update: Coronavirus (COVID-19)


Last updated: June 30, 2020

Update on the 2019–2020 season:
While health officials manage the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community, the Seattle Symphony has made the difficult decision to cancel or postpone all performances through August 31, 2020. See below for ticket donation and exchange information.

Update on the 2020–2021 season:
We are currently reworking our operations for a safe and successful return to Benaroya Hall. Our top priority remains the health and safety of our patrons, staff and musicians. Over the next two months, we will be making important revisions to our 2020–2021 season concert schedule. If needed, this may include changes to artists, programming, performance dates and seat locations. Special precaution is also being taken for audience attendance at live Symphony performances. Any changes will be communicated to ticket holders well in advance of the season opening, and current subscribers/donors will receive regular updates about the upcoming season. Additionally, we will adopt more flexible ticket policies to facilitate everyone's safe participation in Symphony events.
