Cleveland Orchestra Cancels Christmas Concerts

The series, previously scheduled for December 10th through 23rd, were canceled due to the recent and continued rise of positive cases of Covid-19 across the state

The orchestra, based in Cleveland, Ohio, announced the cancellation of its 2020 Christmas concert series at Severance Hall.

Christmas series ticket holders will have access to an exclusive pre-sale opportunity to purchase 2021 Holiday Concert tickets.

“As we all follow the alarming news of increased numbers of positive Covid-19 cases across the entire state of Ohio and the country, please know that our priorities lie with ensuring everyone stay safe during this awful time,” said André Gremillet, President & CEO of The Cleveland Orchestra. “Canceling our Christmas concerts is just another very small example of how our world in 2020 has turned us all upside down. The decision to cancel the concerts while not easy, but has become obvious. It is so unfortunate as we all know how much these concerts are a cherished, holiday season tradition for our community, but the health and safety of our audiences, musicians, staff and volunteers must come first.

“We look forward to a brighter 2021 when we can perform Christmas concerts for our community again. In the meantime we will take care of our ticket holders for the 2020 concerts, offering all options including refunds, gift certificates and priority seating for next year. We will also be extremely grateful of any tickets that are donated back to us as we face the most significant crisis in the orchestra’s history.”
