In an effort to limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have advised that public events of 50 people or more be canceled. In accordance with this guidance, the SPCO is canceling all performances through May 10. This difficult decision has been made out of the deep care for our community, our staff, our musicians and you, our audience.
Ticket holders do not need to take any immediate action. Tickets for canceled concerts will be automatically banked in your account and can be used for future performances this season.
If you hold tickets for a concert during this timeframe, please consider turning back your tickets as a tax-deductible contribution to the SPCO at thespco.org/turnback. The global COVID-19 crisis represents a significant financial challenge for the SPCO. We need your help to keep the SPCO healthy so we can continue to serve our community. When you turn back your tickets as a contribution, you allow us to immediately put those dollars to work in support of the SPCO.
You may also exchange tickets into future concerts free of charge by visiting thespco.org/exchange, or request a refund by contacting our Ticket Office. The Ticket Office walk-up window will be closed during this time. Please contact the ticket office via phone at 651.291.1144 Monday through Friday, 12pm–5pm and Saturday 11am–3pm or email at email@example.com. Please note that tickets obtained for free or as part of an SPCO Concert Membership have no set value and cannot be considered a tax-deductible contribution.
The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra is committed to the health and safety of our audience, our community, our staff and our musicians. We will continue to monitor this rapidly-changing situation and will follow the guidelines laid out by the Minnesota Department of Health, the City of Saint Paul, Ramsey County Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In the event of additional concert cancellations all ticket holders will be notified by phone and email. Updates will also be posted on our website.
