The SLSO is developing concert and building procedures in partnership with a team of infectious disease experts and will make an announcement in August about concerts this fall.
Those who have purchased tickets can use them for the rescheduled dates, donate the value of the tickets to the SLSO and receive a tax deduction or place the ticket value on their account to use for a future concert, prior to May 31, 2021.
The SLSO said it will continue sharing music with the community through rebroadcasts of previous concerts on St. Louis Public Radio, airing on Saturdays at 8 p.m. and on stlpublicradio.org.
SLSO also shares additional content online through its social media channels including SLSO Stories. It recently launched its Songs of America project, a collection of performances that "celebrate the breadth of voices in American music."
