The Oregon Symphony—in response to Oregon State Governor Kate Brown’s announcement this morning that all public gatherings and events with more than 250 people are to be cancelled for the next four weeks in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19—has cancelled all events scheduled at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall through April 6, 2020.

The following concerts have been cancelled:

  • March 13: Open Music with Caroline Shaw (at Alberta Rose Theatre)

  • March 19: Nas: Ilmatic – 25th Anniversary
  • March 21–22: Prohibition Party

All concerts and events beyond April 6 are currently proceeding as planned.

The following options are available for those who have already purchased tickets to cancelled concerts: 

  • Exchange tickets for any future 2019-20 Season performance. All exchange fees will be waived in this situation.
  • Exchange tickets for a gift certificate, which can be used within one year of issue date.
  • Donate tickets, and receive a tax deduction for the total ticket value.
  • Receive a refund for the value of the ticket.

All requests for ticket donations, exchanges, gift certificates, and refunds must be received by June 30, 2020.

A musico-cultural portrait of New York life in the late 1960s, Luciano Berio’s monumental Sinfonia is a bubbling crucible of sounds, styles, ideas, texts, and moods. Portland’s own award-winning media artist Rose Bond, whose previous collaboration with the Oregon Symphony packed the hall, returns to craft eye-popping animation to illuminate this epic music.
