Cancellations & Postponements

In the event of dangerous weather conditions, illness among musicians and/or staff, etc., performances may be postponed or canceled. Postponements and cancellations will be posted on the SPCO website and a message will be recorded on the Ticket Office voicemail at 651.291.1144.

Concert Attire

Many first-time audience members have questions about what to wear to an SPCO concert. You’ll see a whole range of dress at our concerts — from jeans to formal attire — with most audience members falling somewhere in the middle.

Whatever you choose to wear, we want you to be comfortable and enjoy the performance.
