Reimagined 20-21 Season

Updated as of July 23, 2020

 

It is unbelievable how different our world now looks compared to when we launched our 20-21 season in February. At this time, we must revise our 20-21 Season’s programming and cancel Subscriptions & Pick 5 packages. Instead of our originally scheduled offerings, the YSO is exploring small chamber orchestra concerts that can be performed indoors or outdoors in a responsible format.

As COVID 19 guidelines continuously change, the YSO will follow protocols to maintain the safety of patrons, musicians, and staff. Any reimagined events will also include new policies such as socially-distant seating with a limited audience, but we’re also considering online  concerts with digital admission. Rest assured, whatever the content, our programming will continue to be equally compelling yet also safe for attendees.

To revise our 20-21 season is heartbreaking, but in the meantime, follow the YSO on social media for more clips of #YSOoffstage or view our digital library at yorksymphony.org. Stay tuned for more information on upcoming programming!


2020-21 Season Update: Subscribers & Pick 5 Buyers

Updated as of July 15, 2020

Hello Friends of the YSO,

It is, quite literally, unbelievable how different our world now looks compared to mid-February when we launched our 20-21 season. As each of our Spring 2020 concerts dissolved, patrons like you joined together by donating your tickets to support our Musician Relief Fund. All of those donations went to the musicians and contributed 90% of their lost wages. Through it all, we remained hopeful for the future.

However, at this time, we must cancel 2020-21 Subscriptions & Pick 5 packages and revise our season programming to ensure the safety of patrons and musicians. In lieu of our originally scheduled offerings, the YSO plans to present small chamber orchestra concerts that can be performed in a socially-distant and responsible format. Stay tuned for more details.

For subscribers and Pick 5 buyers who already purchased seats, your options will be as follows:

  • Donate your subscription/Pick 5 to the YSO
  • Account credit for future concerts
  • Full Refund

You can contact the Appell Center Box Office at boxoffice@appellcenter.org or leave a voicemail at 717-846-1111 to let them know how you would like your subscription/package to be processed by August 20. After August 20, your subscription/package will be credited to your account for future use.

FEAR NOT: subscriber’s seats will still be on hold for future seasons when YSO large-scale concerts return.  Don’t worry—you won’t lose your seats, and they will be made available to you just as before.

Please know how heartbreaking this decision is for us. In the meantime, be sure to follow the YSO on social media for more digital clips of #YSOoffstage. And stay tuned for more information on upcoming socially distant programming.

Wishing you good mental and physical health,

Michael Reichman

Executive Director
York Symphony Orchestra
