The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera will cancel all remaining regular series performances for the 2019/20 season due to the COVID-19 health crisis.
Affected concerts include Michael Cavanaugh: The Music of Billy Joel on April 18 and Pictures at an Exhibition on April 30. All educational events to be held in conjunction with Pictures at an Exhibition have also been cancelled. Lights! Camera! Pops! on March 21, Disney in Concert Tale as Old as Time on March 28, and Dona Nobis Pacem on April 2 were previously cancelled after the City of Chattanooga recommended that the Tivoli Theatre suspend all concerts until the city gives clearance for them to reopen. The CSO’s performance of Apollo & Jupiter with Chattanooga Ballet on March 15 was cancelled after Chattanooga State’s decision to suspend all on-campus events until March 31. All remaining Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Youth Orchestra performances and practices for 2019/20 have also been cancelled.
Ticketholders are encouraged to donate their ticket back to the CSO or exchange tickets for a performance in the 2020/21 season. Refund requests for cancelled performances will be honored, but requests must be submitted by the first Sunday following the scheduled performance date. Please contact the CSO Box Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. Refunds can take up to 10 business days to process.
We encourage current subscribers to renew as normal for our 2020/21 season. Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke has announced a shelter-in-place order for the city beginning April 3, and the CSO staff will not be working in the office until this measure is lifted. Renewals received by mail may be delayed during this time, so to ensure your subscription can be fulfilled, please subscribe online at chattanoogasymphony.org. If you prefer to subscribe via phone, please call 423.267.8583 ext. 2101 and leave a voicemail request, and a member of our box office staff will be in touch to complete your order.
Because we will be implementing remote work for staff, please bear with us on response times to your inquiries as we transition to this new work model. Thank you for your continued support of the CSO!
