We're going digital this fall, and everyone is invited to tune in for free!

Transport yourself to breathtaking concerts live from the Ordway Concert Hall without leaving home — no ticket necessary!

We recently announced that our previously scheduled concerts are canceled through the end of 2020 in an effort to keep our audiences, our musicians, our staff, and our community safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to the time when we can again gather in concert venues — and in the meantime, we continue to share transformational performances with people everywhere through our free digital Concert Library.

Today, we are delighted to announce a new series of six live performances that will be broadcast in high-definition streaming video from the Ordway Concert Hall. Featuring stunningly clear audio and crisp, high-quality video, these video streams will provide intimate and engaging concert experiences that are the next best thing to attending performances in person. These digital concerts will also include bonus video features such as personal interviews with SPCO musicians and other behind-the-scenes content.

In addition to the series of new digital concerts, we are excited to share four special “encore broadcasts” featuring music from past concerts with new surprises, including our first-ever New Year’s Eve stream. As always, even more performances are available for viewing anytime in our free on-demand collection. Our digital offerings are available to everyone, and always free of charge.

Consider turning back your tickets as a tax-deductible contribution

The cancellation of concerts due to the COVID-19 pandemic represents a significant economic challenge for the SPCO, and we need your help to keep the orchestra healthy so we can continue to serve our community. As a ticket holder to a canceled concert, you have the opportunity to help us in a meaningful way by turning back your tickets and parking passes as a tax-deductible contribution to the SPCO. By doing so, you will be providing vital support, critical for ensuring that the SPCO can weather this historic crisis and emerge healthy and poised to continue serving our community.
