SPCO performances during the 2021.22 season were limited to around 75 minutes without intermission to create a safer concert experience during the pandemic. Audience response to this format was overwhelmingly positive and many indicated they would enjoy attending concerts without intermission in future seasons.

While we plan to resume full-length performances with intermission in the upcoming season, we will offer several weeks of Express Concerts without intermission as well, which will feature the same amount of music without the intermission break.

Express Concerts are spread throughout the season and are included in a number of packages across SPCO venues, offering subscribers of different packages an opportunity to experience this concert format. If you prefer only full-length concerts, or if there are no Express Concerts in your package and you’d like to try one out, you can exchange tickets between full-length and Express Concerts, with no restrictions or fees.
